Donations & Sponsorships

Sustainability efforts at FIU and in the community rely on donations, sponsorship, and grants. We thank all who have become part of our team! You are truly creating a better world.

FIU Sustainability Initiatives

The Office of University Sustainability has a strong focus on outreach and education, seeking to create a culture of sustainability on campus. These Sustainability initiatives are designed to help students, faculty, and staff become better aware of sustainability issues and take steps to reduce their impact on the environment in their everyday activities. Contributions will go to supporting and expanding these programs.


Many of our programs and events are supported by title sponsors. We partner with businesses, non-profits, and organizations to bring events and programs to the university and local community to further sustainability and protection of our environment.

The Office of University Sustainability works with each partner to customize and individualize the perfect sponsorship package that maximizes community exposure and supports both the university and partner’s sustainability mission. Please contact us to learn more about opportunities for your organization to become of the FIU GoGreen Team.

FIU Nature Preserve

The FIU Nature Preserve is an 11-acre outdoor environmental education facility meant to share the knowledge gained by university researchers about the freshwater Florida Everglades with our student body and the community. This community forest provides excellent recreational opportunities to students, faculty/staff, and visitors. Three diverse ecosystems (Pine Rocklands, Hardwood Hammocks, and Freshwater Wetlands) provide significant habitat for our 13 endangered plant species and 17 threatened plant species, as well as the other 452 plant and animal species living here. In addition to this there is also an organic fruit and vegetable garden which attracts many people and pollinators to this part of campus. This land is unique because the soil here has never been disturbed. Whereas, most of Miami has been dug up, filled in, raised in elevation, and paved over, this special place has been preserved. It is located on the west side of the Modesto Maidique Campus (MMC) of Florida International University and is open to the public every day from sunrise to sunset.
