The Randell Research Center Endowment

The future of the Randell Research Center is tied to the growth of its endowment fund through the University of Florida Foundation. While membership in the Friends of the RRC provides vital support toward achieving this goal, additional contributions are solicited from those who wish to make even more substantial and lasting contributions to the long-term stability of the RRC. Please make a gift to our endowment fund online.
