Mike Norvell and his wife Maria have made a notable donation to Florida State athletics.

The school on Thursday announced that the Norvells made a $1 million donation.

In a letter to FSU leaders, the Norvells wrote:

“Maria and I are grateful for the leadership you have shown leading our Athletics Department as well as the Seminole Boosters. We are grateful to be on the journey of elevating not only our football program but all of our athletic teams to the Nation’s elite together. I am thankful for the position I have in leading FSU Football and we would like to financially contribute to help the program and our athletic department as a whole.”

“The very generous donation by Mike and Maria is deeply appreciated and is another illustration of the tremendous excitement around our entire athletics program,” Athletics Director Michael Alford said.

The donations make the Norvells the 300th member of the Bowden Society. Their donation will be split amongst the Dunlap Football Center Fund, Bowden Society Facility Fund and the Sports Nutrition department in athletics.

FSU is generating plenty of positive publicity entering the season, after the Seminoles had a 10-3 record in 2022 including a win over Oklahoma in the Cheez-It Bowl.
