LEAD GIFTSTransformation. Jack Antaramian envisions it, embraces it, and brings it about.The residents of Naples have seen him in action through the years as he led theredevelopment of the city’s once-aging shopping district around Fifth Avenue Southinto today’s vibrant residential/commercial destination. For Antaramian, it was all aboutenvisioning the possibilities.So it’s no surprise that his visionary knack has translated into a gift of 75 acresof prime real estate to help Florida Gulf Coast University continue to transformSouthwest Florida. “We are a strong believer in the importance of education,”Antaramian says. “Supporting FGCU and its goals to continually expand advancededucational opportunities only adds to the appeal of Southwest Florida. It’s excitingto be a part of something that promises so much potential today and in the future.”Conservatively valued at 7.5 million, the land is slated to be the possible site of aresearch park, College of Education building and an FGCU-affiliated K-12 schoolJack Antaramianthat could be the home of 600 students in a learning environment that wouldprovide an alternative to traditional schooling.Charter schools can offer innovative curriculum, the newest instructionalstrategies, and smaller class sizes that promote more student-teacher interaction.The charter school could also help alleviate the increasing demands on localschool districts caused by the continued growth in the area and the pressure thatcreates for classroom space for school children. The new charter school could beopen as early as 2007.As president of Naples-based Antaramian Development Corp., Antaramian hasbeen creating master-planned residential communities, mixed-use developmentsand high-end commercial properties for more than 20 years. Those two decades ofaward-winning work included residential and mixed-use projects in Boston beforethe company relocated to Southwest Florida. 5

LEAD GIFTSThere’s no need to convince The Ginn Company President and CEO Bobby Ginn about theimportance of a solid foundation. Having worked in the building and real estate developmentindustry since his boyhood days as a young apprentice in his father’s South Carolina business,Ginn understands full well that structures require sound foundations if they are to withstand the test of time.Those same strong foundations are required by institutions of higher education.By laying the financial groundwork today, we ensure that the benefits of a collegeeducation are available to future students.Today, those foundations have been reinforced at FGCU, thanks to The GinnCompany’s generous pledge of 5 million in funding to the university. Themoney will help support a new engineering program that will eventually graduatehighly skilled professionals who will add to the pool of high-wage earners inSouthwest Florida.“Partnering with FGCU was an easy decision for us,” Ginn says. “Our companyand our employees are committed to the local communities where we developour residential and resort projects. So we’re understandably pleased to helpfund a new engineering program for such a fast-growing institution of highereducation.”Because The Ginn Company’s donation is unrestricted, the University canallocate the funds on a discretionary basis. Outlays for building an engineeringfacility, launching and operating the program, and underwriting scholarships andendowments are among the options under consideration.Bobby GinnBased in Celebration, Florida, The Ginn Company is one of the fastest-growingresort and real estate development and management firms in the Southeast, withnearly 20,000 acres currently in planning or development in Florida alone. Thecompany specializes in creating master-planned leisure-lifestyle and recreationoriented communities, primarily in Florida and other parts of the Southeast. 6

LEAD GIFTSCommunity service has been a hallmark in the lives of David and Linda Lucas. And when it comesto demonstrating their support of key community initiatives, education is at the top of their list.Their commitment to FGCU and their vision for sustainable growth have resulted in a gift of 2million to establish the David and Linda Lucas Institute for Master Planned Community Development andFinance Endowed Fund. The gift will be matched by an additional 2 million in state funding.The Lucas Institute is designed to fill a need not currently met by any other highereducation institution in Florida, a state whose economy is significantly driven bythe real estate industry. Culminating in an MBA with a concentration in real estatedevelopment, the program’s major components will include capital formation,project management, land development and regulation, environmental managementand real estate, in addition to a fundamental business curriculum.“We welcome the opportunity to help Florida Gulf Coast University achieveits vision of becoming one of the nation’s finest Universities. It takes all of usworking together to build outstanding academic, sports and student programsDavid & Linda Lucasthat are not possible through state funding alone,” Mr. and Mrs. Lucas say.“We consider it a privilege to support FGCU and give back to the community.”As Chairman of The Bonita Bay Group, Mr. Lucas is one of the pioneersin advocating sustainable development with master planned communitiesthat set the highest standards of land use, environmental preservation, watermanagement and social infrastructure. Among the many awards the companyhas earned for setting new standards in community development is the nationalAward of Excellence from the Urban Land Institute (ULI).In addition to serving on the FGCU Board of Trustees, Mr. Lucas also serveson the boards of several foundations and corporations, including the SouthwestFlorida Community Foundation, the Bonita Springs Community Foundationand the Lee County United Way. Mrs. Lucas is actively involved with herchurch and is the volunteer secretary for the Community Bible Study. 7

LEAD GIFTSExpanding the reach of human knowledge is at the heart of every great institution of higherlearning. Breakthroughs in biotechnology. Advances in medicine. A better understanding ofthe ecological dynamics that sustain the natural environment. Research into such diverse areasserves to deepen our understanding of the world in which we live.With the support of the Naples Botanical Garden (NBG), FGCU is establishing a livinglaboratory of research, conservation and education at NBG that will allow students andscholars to explore new areas of knowledge. The University-directed research and educationfacility will provide labs for faculty and students to conduct research that concentrateson applying biotechnology to plants, including medicine, hydrological and ecologicalapplications, reproductive ecology and erosion control.NBG President Sondra Quinn says, “Through this partnership, we will expand the scopeof the guest experience at Naples Botanical Garden by engaging visitors in a variety ofinnovative learning opportunities.” A donation of one acre of land from NBG to FGCU andstrategic gifts from a few friends make it possible for the University to build the facility,planned to span between 10,000 and 15,000 square feet and be completed within threeyears.Donors to the facility are: Pfeffer-Beach Foundation, Inc.; Mr.and Mrs. James S. White; Mr. and Mrs. Albert C. Buehler, Jr.;Juliet C. Sproul; Mr. and Mrs. Scott Kapnick; Carol and ThomasMcCann; and Mr. and Mrs. Richard H. Benson.“The Board of the Naples Botanical Garden believes that apartnership with Florida Gulf Coast University is essential,” saysJuliet C. Sproul, a member of both the FGCU Foundation Boardand the Naples Botanical Garden Board. “The University bringsthe research and academic aspects to the partnership and the GardenNaples Botanical Gardenbrings an immense natural research resource. It is a win/win forboth parties. I am proud to be supporting this important project.” 8

LEAD GIFTSThe ability to read well opens the door to entire new worlds of opportunity. In fact, it is acornerstone of learning. Unfortunately for some children, learning to read is not as easy asA-B-C. There are children in Southwest Florida whose futures are in jeopardy because of poorreading skills, an issue particularly troublesome among children in low-income communities. But FGCUis taking important steps to assist our youngest citizens with the support of a 750,000 grant from theNaples Children and Education Foundation.The Collier County Early Literacy and Reading Partnership for EducationalSuccess Project is targeted at children ages 3 to 6. The program is designed toimprove the fundamental pre-literacy skills in these preschoolers as it sets thestage for reading success in elementary school and throughout the children’slives.Several years of research results have revealed measurable improvement inearly reading readiness among children using the Early Literacy and LearningModel (ELLM) curriculum implemented at Head Start early education locationsaround Collier County, Fun Time Child Development Center, and in otherCollier County preschools. Now, the new funding is allowing the program toDeveloping reading skills amongchildren is crucial for successthroughout their lives.expand. Scheduled for nearly 50 classrooms this year, much of the expansionwill take place in Immokalee in Collier County. The program has a three-partapproach: support for students in the classroom, promoting family participationin the child’s reading efforts at home, and professional development support forteachers who work directly with young, at-risk students.A vital part of ELLM is educating parents and other caregivers about theimportance of their young students developing sound reading skills and creatinga home environment that encourages reading.The Naples Children and Education Foundation, which has raised millions ofdollars for children’s organizations, has been instrumental in advocating forchildren in Collier County. 9

DEFERRED GIFTSProviding Opportunity to Students in NeedFor students who simply cannot afford to go to college, the dreamof a University degree usually remains out of reach. But Williamand Joan Attridge are committed to helping students’ dreamscome true. The Cape Coral couple has established the Joan andWilliam Attridge Endowed Scholarship Fund with a deferredgift of 500,000, which will qualify for state matching funds.Preference will be given to students from Cape Coral who needfinancial assistance.President William C. Merwin with Joan andWilliam Attridge“We have been very impressed as we’ve watched the Universitygrow, and we wanted to support the effort,” Mr. Attridge says. “What better way than to help students gettheir education who might not otherwise be able to attend because they couldn’t afford it?” Because theendowed scholarship fund enables future local students to pursue their educational dreams, all of SouthwestFlorida will benefit.“The area is becoming younger and younger, with increasing numbers of potential University students,”he says. “We have a real opportunity to develop a highly skilled and educated population. We think that’sextremely important because it means a more prosperous future for all of Southwest Florida.”A Legacy of LearningThe late Thelma Oulton was passionate about the things she believedin, and education was among the many worthwhile issues she feltstrongly about. Although family hardships forced her to leave highschool in the 1920s to care for and support her younger brothers andsisters, Oulton left a legacy gift that will impact the lives of countlessFGCU students in the years to come.Upon her death at the age of 90, she established the Thelma andEdwin Oulton Scholarship Fund with an initial gift of 245,000.The gift will receive a 50 percent match from the state, boosting theendowment to 367,500. An additional significant trust fund willbe added to the scholarship fund at a later date. Jim Kerr, a Bonita Springs attorney and a close friend whohandled Oulton’s estate planning after the death of her husband, Edwin, knew her well. “One day, she askedme how I got through school, and I told her about my scholarships,” he recalls. “She was intrigued by that andvery much interested in the potential of the new University. She was intelligent and socially conscious.”As someone who always looked to the future and took an active role in advancing the causes that served toimprove the lives of those around her, Oulton’s legacy will now touch the lives of FGCU students as theyexpand their own horizons.DEFERRED GIFTS 10

DEFERRED GIFTSTouching Lives Through LearningBarbara J. June, the niece of the late Ed and Esther Kuss,fondly remembers the longtime community activists inthe Fort Myers area whose legacy of commitment lives onthrough their establishment of a charitable trust to providescholarship support to University students. “They reallyembodied the meaning of commitment to one’s community. The youth of Fort Myers will continue to benefit fromtheir undying love for the Fort Myers area,” says June.The Kusses moved to the area in the 1960s and quickly became involved in the community. Mr. Kuss helpedspearhead efforts to establish a Veteran’s Clinic. After the clinic opened, the couple volunteered countlesshours in the clinic pharmacy. Mrs. Kuss was also a Michigan State Fair Blue Ribbon baker whose cakesmade every occasion special. A strong belief in education and its importance to the future of Southwest Florida were an important part of the Kuss’ lives. In addition to supporting FGCU, they also bequeathed scholarship funds to a number of other local educational institutions. June says, “They recognized that the educationof the young people of Fort Myers was a means to help the community grow and thrive.”As during their lives, the Kuss’ commitment to education has now become part of their legacy – a legacy thatwill touch the lives of FGCU students well into the future. 11

SCHOLARSHIPSThe Fabric of SuccessMarvin and Helene Gralnick are quite familiar with the fabric of success.As founders of Fort Myers-based Chico’s FAS, the couple has built a topperforming women’s fashion and accessories retail operation known for itsappealing style, customer loyalty and corporate substance. Now they andthe company have demonstrated their commitment to helping students stitchtogether their own fabric of success. To honor its founders, Chico’s FASestablished the Marvin and Helene Gralnick Scholarship Fund, which willsupport FGCU students whose studies are focused on entrepreneurship or art.Chico’s established the fund with a total of 250,000, the largest scholarshipestablished at FGCU by a business in Lee County. When combined withstate matching funds, the value of the scholarship endowment increases to 387,500. “Education is thebottom line for success in our young people,” says Cole Peacock, Chico’s community developmentmanager. “The University is a major asset to the future of Southwest Florida. It is the engine for a highlyeducated population, which is extremely important to positive growth in our area.”Helene & Marvin GralnickThe Gralnicks founded Chico’s in 1983 in a small store on Sanibel Island, selling Mexican folk art andcotton sweaters. Over the past two decades, the company, which Mrs. Gralnick named after a friend’sbilingual parrot, has become a leader in women’s clothing and related accessories.Supporting the Promise of EducationNoted American author Miriam Beard once wrote, “the results of philanthropyare always beyond calculation.” It’s hard to imagine an endeavor in which thatobservation resonates more clearly than education. Students who depend onfinancial support to sustain themselves during their college years often impactthe world in ways more significant than anyone could ever imagine.Brian and Denise Cobb, Naples philanthropists committed to assisting youngpeople, believe in the promise of education. That commitment has resultedin the Brian and Denise Cobb Endowed Scholarship Fund, a 150,000endowment that will support FGCU students majoring in Communication. TheBrian & Denise CobbCobbs’ support of the University extends their years of work on behalf of today’syouth. They are co-founders and board members of the Naples Children and Education Foundation. Additionally,Mr. Cobb is the board chair and Mrs. Cobb a committee chair of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, which in threeyears has raised more than 10 million for children’s causes. He is also a member of FGCU’s Board of Trustees.The Cobbs are distinguished in the communications industry. Mr. Cobb has built a renowned 30-year careerin the broadcasting industry. He is the founder and president of CobbCorp LLC, a national media mergerand acquisition company. Mrs. Cobb’s career in broadcasting spans 25 years as an award-winning televisionproducer, on-air talent, station manager, consultant and station owner.SCHOLARSHIPS 12

SCHOLARSHIPSBroadening the World of EducationKnowledge comes to life when students combine classroomlearning with real world experience. Thanks to a three-year 60,000 gift from the Meftah Scholarship Foundation ofNaples, FGCU students will be able to travel and study abroadto enhance their learning and expand their horizons.The Meftah International Internship Program gives studentshands-on learning in a living laboratory, as well as the chance to develop an understanding of othercultures as they travel abroad. Two participants in the Meftah International Program in 2003 traveled tothe island of Roatan, Honduras. At 49 square miles, Roatan is the largest and most developed of the threemain Bay Islands off the northern coast of Honduras. There, the students worked at an FGCU-operatedfield school that focuses on ethnographic studies, and explores cultural evolution and traditions. Roatan hasthree centuries of interaction between the peoples of England, Spain and the Americas.The program was so successful that this year, 10 students majoring in Anthropology, English,Environmental Studies and Spanish participated. Among the students’ activities were the collection ofinformation on gardening practices in Honduras’ Bay Islands and the sharing of these practices with theNaples Botanical Garden, among other organizations. The six-week summer program provides between sixand nine credit hours of coursework taught by FGCU faculty.Excelling in the School of LifeSometimes, life itself is the greatest teacher. That is certainly the case for FortMyers resident Joyce Rogaski, who has established FGCU’s first endowedfellowship with a 100,000 commitment that will benefit deserving graduatestudents in the current nursing program and in future criminal justice andforensics programs. The gift is eligible for a 50 percent state match, whichwill increase the Joyce Rogaski Graduate Fund to 150,000.FGCU Vice Presidentfor AdvancementSteve Magiera andJoyce RogaskiMrs. Rogaski and her late husband, Emory, previously established theJoyce and Emory H. Rogaski Endowed Scholarship Fund at FGCU. TheRogaskis embody commitment and self-directed learning. They grew upon impoverished farms in Ohio and did not have the opportunity to attendcollege. They worked hard all of their lives, including successfully owningtwo restaurants. Mrs. Rogaski also once worked as a nurse and Emorypracticed real estate.Throughout their lives, they learned that education opens many doors. Providing students the keys to thosedoors is a dream come true for Mrs. Rogaski. “When we gave the first scholarship, it was the best day ofmy life,” she says. Of her fellowship gift she adds, “This is the second best day of my life.”SCHOLARSHIPS 13

SCHOLARSHIPS“Krafting” an FGCU EducationKraft Construction President and CEO Fred Pezeshkan is a man who believesin focusing on the future – after being forced to flee Iran with his family during theIslamic revolution in 1979, the future was all he had. He found that future with KraftConstruction in Naples more than two decades ago, and has helped build the companyinto one of the leading construction management firms on Florida’s west coast.Kraft ConstructionCompany Presidentand CEO Fred Pezeshkan(left) and ChairmanRobert L. CarselloNow, thanks to the Kraft Construction Company Scholarship Fund, FGCUstudents will be able to craft their futures too. Under the leadership of Pezeshkanand company Chairman Robert L. Carsello, Kraft Construction enhanced theircompany’s endowed scholarship with a gift of 100,000. State matching fundsraise the total value of the endowment to 150,000 to support students majoring inbusiness. In addition, Kraft Construction contributed 50,000 in operating dollars tobegin the Lucas Institute of Master Planned Community Development and Finance.Pezeshkan, who is Chair Emeritus of the FGCU Foundation, draws from his own life experience to recognizethat obstacles can arise on the road to achieving goals in life. Accordingly, the scholarship stipulates that “fullconsideration should be given to those students who are working to the best of their ability, even under less thanideal life circumstances, and that the values of hard work, perseverance and the ability to achieve goals” areimportant factors. Factors that in any equation add up to success – both in business and in life.Nursing Scholarship Provides Dose of EducationWith the nation facing a critical shortage of nurses, the healthcare industry is working to develop more of these crucialfrontline practitioners. Closer to home, the health care industry isa vital and growing component of the Southwest Florida region,with nurses being called upon to deliver quality care for theever-expanding population.Thanks to Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) of Florida, FGCU is positioned to prepare the next generationof these care providers. BCBS’s gift of 100,000 to establish the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida NursingScholarship Fund will support students in the College of Health Professions’ School of Nursing. The Universityhas applied for 50,000 in state matching funds. “This scholarship gift will assist us in attracting highlyqualified students,” says Dr. Karen Miles, director, School of Nursing and Southwest Florida Endowed Chairof Nursing. “In turn, the Southwest Florida community will benefit by having more well-educated nurseswho can deliver high quality health care to its citizens.”FGCU offers both undergraduate (BSN) and graduate (MSN) degrees in nursing, with master level studentshaving concentrations in Primary Health Care (including specialty areas in Nurse Practitioner and NurseEducator) and Nurse Anesthesia. BCBS of Florida is the oldest and largest health plan provider in the stateof Florida, providing coverage to 3.5 million Floridians.SCHOLARSHIPS 14

SCHOLARSHIPSJoining the ClubIt’s easy to see the physical support that College ClubApartments is providing the University. A visit to the siteof the nearby student-oriented apartments on Ben HillGriffin Parkway reveals an SCM Properties communitythat is attracting plenty of attention from students who areinterested in off-campus housing.Now, SCM Properties is providing financial support aswell. Under the leadership of Naples developer FrankCollege Club ApartmentsPotestio, the company has established the College ClubApartments Endowed Scholarship Fund with a gift commitment of 100,000 that will be eligible for astate match of 50,000.
