What is Round Up for FSU?
Round Up for FSU is a philanthropic initiative. Round Up for FSU was launched by Florida State University’s Office of Business Services in July 2016, and partnered with the Student Government Association in August 2019. Round Up for FSU gives customers at specific campus retail locations the opportunity to “Round Up” their purchases to the nearest quarter (25¢).

Who benefits, and why is FSU undertaking Round Up for FSU?
The Round Up for FSU initiative benefits the FSU Food For Thought Food Pantry. FSU recognizes that food insecurity is a growing trend on college campuses across the country. According to the Hunger in America 2014 National Report, published by Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization, nearly half (49.3 percent) of their college clients must choose between food and educational expenses (e.g., tuition, books and supplies, rent). Through Round Up for FSU, the university is helping alleviate hunger on campus.
