A different kind of campaign

Mark your calendars for Get Up and Give! On Nov. 7 and 8, the University of Florida will launch its third annual Get Up and Give campaign, a 36-hour online giving campaign that invites the entire Gator community to support UF. The fundraiser starts at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7 and ends Friday, on the 8th at 8 p.m. The Florida Fund, UF’s annual giving department, partnered with the UF Foundation Communications and UF University Relations departments to create Get Up & Give as a campaign designed to educate alumni on the importance and power of private support. Did you know that state funding covers less than 20 percent of UF’s operating budget? Your university needs private support and giving back is part of what it means to be a Gator!

Get Up and Give is also an opportunity for EduGator alumni, faculty, staff and students to show support specifically for the College of Education.  We invite the COE community to donate to any College of Education program or project. Gifts of any size are welcome and will be accepted online. The goal for the college this year is to have at least 200 EduGivers!

This year during Homecoming, show your EduGator spirit and join other Gators across the nation by making a gift during this 36-hour university-wide giving campaign. “We want this campaign to be a fun and exciting way for the COE community to get involved in philanthropy, while highlighting the importance of how your support can benefit the college and the students that we serve,” said Brian K. Danforth, associate director of development for the College of Education.
