Manny Rodriguez Building Endowment

Manny Rodriguez, '75, was the driving force behind construction of the FAIRWINDS Alumni Center
on the UCF campus.

Although he passed away in November 2005, his spirit lives on in the building that was his dream come true.

Manny's dedication to the project extended well beyond its construction. He wanted to ensure that the building's operations would be funded in perpetuity, and he gave significantly in his will as a visible sign of his dedication.

The Manny Rodriguez, '75, FAIRWINDS Alumni Center Building Endowment was created in his honor. One of Manny's last requests was that other members of the UCF family support this endowment so that all alumni, present and future, will always have a home at UCF.


"Manny's presence is felt far and wide at UCF. He dedicated his life to his alma mater. This is our chance to recognize Manny's unwavering service and help fulfill his final wish that alumni will always have a home on campus."

Those who give $1,000 or more will create their own legacy at the FAIRWINDS Alumni Center with a 4 x 8 personalized brick on the alumni patio.
