We are constantly working to show our Ignite donors that we appreciate their support. Because you are the key to our campaign’s success, recognizing each of you is an integral part of our program.

Every donor who makes a gift will receive an Ignite pin, unique to the year his or her gift was made. Faculty and staff who have participated for 3, 4 or 5 consecutive years receive a Loyal Donor certificate.

Steadfast donors who have made planned gifts to FIU through the Ignite Campaign are recognized as Torchbearers. We develop Torchbearer gifts in collaboration with Planned Giving and donors at this level enjoy induction into the Torchbearer Society during our Annual Ignite Kick-Off Celebration.

We acknowledge the hard work it takes to reach full unit participation. We know it isn’t easy. Units within FIU that have achieved excellent participation rates are uniquely identified. When participation rates reach an impressive 50% to 74%, units receive the Escalator Award. For those who achieve unit participation rates of 75% to 99% they recieve the Elevator Award. Outstanding units accomplishing 100% participation are presented with the coveted Apex Award. We honor these exceptional units at our Annual Ignite Kick-Off Celebration.

The Spark Award is given to dedicated Igniters who go above and beyond to support the Ignite Campaign within their specific unit, encouraging colleague participation, developing new projects, and truly capturing the spirit of the Ignite campaign. We award the Spark Award to these important Igniters at our Annual Ignite Kick-Off Celebration.
