TRUE Seminole Endowment
Since 2004, Seminole Student Boosters has quickly become the largest student organization at Florida State University and in the state of Florida. With over 4,000 active members annually, this organization set out to further their philanthropic mission through the development of the TRUE Seminole Campaign. With an overwhelming response from the entire Seminole Community, over $250,000 has been raised in support of student athletes at Florida State. These funds allow FSU students athletes to excel both on the field and in the classroom.
