What Does My Gift Support?
Your gift supports everything! including UF Research, Internships, Master Gardener Volunteer program, 4-H youth development & campgrounds, Florida Master Naturalist Program, College of Agriculture & Life Sciences (CALS), Extension Educational programs, UF/IFAS Research, and SO MUCH MORE. There are also many commemorative Foundations and Endowments. You can even give to help low-income students take part in summer educational internships.
You may direct your gift to the school, department, research initiative, campus activity, or UF program which means the most to you. It is important that EVERY Gator, or Gator-lover, gives and becomes part of this program which gives back so much to our Florida communities, our country and the world.
Is There A Minimum Gift Amount?
There is NO minimum gift amount. But gifts should be in whole U.S. dollar amounts. You can give as little as $1 or as much as you can. And your gift is tax deductible. Some gifts even qualify for exclusive, limited-edition items, which you could receive within 6-weeks. These cannot be shipped internationally. But, if you would like more than 1 item, you can make separate gifts.
