About Seminole Boosters

Who we are

Building the FSU Community and Building Champions On and Off the Field
At Seminole Boosters, we're not just passionate about collegiate athletics; we believe in its unparalleled power to shape character, build community, and ignite a lifelong pursuit of excellence. For us, it's more than a game. It's about advancing the legacy of Florida State Athletics, making connections with the FSU Community, and building champions on and off the field.

The Seminole Boosters are committed to nurturing exceptional athletes while fostering a tribe of fans and alumni all dedicated to excellence and leadership.

Being part of Seminole Boosters is not just about donations; it's about belonging to a community that shares a profound love for Florida State University and a vision for the future of our athletic programs. Together, we can ensure that fans and alumni will always have a place within the Seminole family, our teams have everything they need to succeed and that our athletes can continue to make us proud, both on and off the field.

What We Do

Seminole Boosters is the Direct Support Organization for the Florida State Athletics Department. Every year, Seminole Boosters connects with thousands of fans who provide millions in funding directly to the athletics department.

Scholarships

Seminole Boosters provides more than $10 million annually in scholarship costs on behalf of all FSU student-athletes. While these scholarships are of no cost to the student-athletes, they are not free. The university does not provide tuition discounts or waivers

Facilities

We fund more than $11 million annually for several athletic facilities including Doak Campbell Stadium, Dick Howser Stadium, Dunlap Indoor Training Facility, Soccer/Softball Complex, Track and Field, Seminole Golf Course, Basketball Training Center, and Morcom Aquatics Center.

Operations

We invest more than $10 million annually towards winning-edge resources including strength and conditioning, nutrition, equipment, sports medicine, staffing and more.

Sport-Specific Giving

We provide additional opportunities for each team to acquire one-time needs beyond their annual operating budget through the Coaches Clubs. These needs include minor facility enhancements, international trips, training technology and more. Additionally, we help promote personal branding opportunities for student-athletes through The Battle’s End.

Revenue Overview

Seminole Boosters generates revenue on behalf of FSU Athletics in seven key areas. The following chart represents a summary of revenue sources, area usage and annual dollar amount raised from each area.
Revenue Overview

Why Give

The Florida State University Athletics program is primarily funded by generous contributions from over 15,000 Seminole Booster members, Atlantic Coast Conference distributions, sponsorship agreements (via Seminole Sports Properties), and ticket revenue.
But why, you may wonder, does your contribution matter? Every dollar you donate ignites a spark of opportunity, lighting the path for our athletes to not only excel in their sport but to triumph in life. Your support offers scholarships, enhances facilities, and ensures our programs remain competitive on a national level. More than that, you invest in the future - a future where every athlete can push their limits, every coach can inspire greatness, and every game can make history. Your investment goes beyond the field or the court. It fosters a culture of excellence, empowers our next generation of leaders, and keeps the Seminole spirit fiercely alive. Together, we are One Tribe.

BOARD NOMINATIONS

Seminole Boosters is committed to the development of a large and diverse pool of candidates to serve as members of the Board of Directors. Annually, we seek nominations of potential candidates from the members of the Florida State University family. Candidates should demonstrate a passion for Florida State University and its athletics programs, a high level of integrity, and a willingness to make the time commitments associated with the At-Large position. It is not an express requirement that a candidate be a graduate or a former student of FSU; however, every proposed candidate must be a member of Seminole Boosters in good standing.

Nominations for 2024 are closed. Thank you to all who provided nominations.

If you have any questions about the nomination process, please contact Kelly Nielsen at [email protected].
