On February 17, 2022, Gators everywhere will “Stand Up & Holler” by making a gift to the UF program that means the most to them. Support from alumni and friends on Gator Nation Giving Day powers our work to better the lives of people throughout Florida and across the world. Help us spread the word by sharing one of our posts, or one of your own, on social media with #AllForTheGators!
UF’s goal for Giving Day 2022 is 23,000 gifts in 24 hours, and every gift will count towards this goal. This year, we have some exciting challenges to double your impact:

- Gifts to 4-H Camps (Timpoochee, Cloverleaf and Cherry Lake) and the Florida 4-H Program will help unlock bonus gifts totaling $5,000 from Dr. Marilyn Norman.

You can support the local Extension office in your county, and your favorite Extension programs like 4-H, Master Gardener Volunteers and Master Naturalists. Support our CALS Gators through one of the many beyond-the-classroom opportunities as part of the VP Promise initiative, including internships with UF/IFAS Research. And if you don’t see your favorite program, you can search for it by clicking here and still be counted on Giving Day!
