14 Agencies Pitch 5th Largest University in the U.S. Stinghouse Wins.

Florida International University, the 5th largest university in the country, embarks on the largest capital campaign in the school’s history with a goal to raise $750 million in seven years.

After inviting 14 agencies nationwide to participate in a 10-month pitch process, the FIU Foundation selected challenger brand ad agency, Stinghouse, as their agency of record. The engagement includes a three-year contract in support of its capital campaign communications efforts during that time.

Stinghouse is no stranger to FIU, having successfully served the university’s creative communications needs in a number of areas. This includes the development and launch of the university’s lead fundraising website, give.fiu.edu.

“The impact FIU is creating here in Miami and around the Howard Lipman FIUworld is amazing. We’re thankful for the community of donors who have helped FIU get to where we are now, but like the community we serve, there’s an intense need for more across the board. Our community needs more solutions centers in all areas, from healthcare to business, science to the arts and beyond. FIU is a unique force in advancing meaningful work.

We needed a creative marketing agency that fully understands the uniqueness of FIU, from where we’ve been to where we’re going. Stinghouse is that partner for us. Throughout the vetting process, they continued to demonstrate the ability to understand our unique challenges and opportunities and offered up customized creative ideas that were strategically sound. Stinghouse will help us get to where we need to be,” said Howard Lipman, CEO of the FIU Foundation and Senior VP of University Advancement.
