Stand Up & Holler 2023
Attention County supporters, volunteers, friends, Orange County residents, and especially local Gators:
UF’s 2023 Gator Nation Giving Day begins at 12:00AM on February 16, 2023, and you can “Stand Up & Holler” for our UF/IFAS Extension Orange County office for 24 hours. Through your support, we can advance our mission right here in Orange County by connecting more people with science/research-based solutions for the challenges we face locally. You can make direct donations here: Gator Giving Day Orange County
Your gift to our UF/IFAS Extension office will contribute to positive change in our community. This change could impact 4-H clubs and programming for over 10,000 youth, expand lawn and garden support from our local 130 Master Gardener Volunteers, provide tools and resources for local growers and those that aspire to be, improve natural resource conservation strategies for our trees or watersheds, and offer healthy living skills for families, such nutrition and finances.
Just last year, we highlighted Orange County farmers and producers, gave away over 1,200 trees through the Adopt-A-Tree program, provided free mosquito traps to Orange County residents, maintained the downtown wildflower garden and 2-acre Exploration Gardens at our office location, hosted First Time Homebuyer and RentWise programs, offered 4-H Day Camps, and much more!
You can give gifts of any amount ($1 and upward) to any UF fund during Gator Nation Giving Day. Be assured that your contribution provides direct support for local programs. Please consider standing up wherever you are and hollering!
