Homecoming 2019

UF Homecoming traditions unite everyone under the same idea: It’s Great to be a Florida Gator.

UF kicks off week-long ‘Get Up and Give’ campaign

It’s that time of year again to Get Up and Give!

On Monday, Oct. 13, the University of Florida launched its fourth annual Get Up and Give campaign, a five-day giving campaign that invites the entire Gator community to support UF–all at once.

The fundraiser lasts from Monday until 11:59 p.m. on Friday night, Oct. 17.

The Florida Fund, UF’s annual giving unit, partnered with UF Foundation Communications and UF University Relations to create Get Up & Give as a campaign 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 relies on 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. Even a small gift can make a big impact. Our goal is to increase alumni participation and raise awareness of the importance of giving back to UF.

This year during Homecoming, show your EduGator spirit and join other Gators across the nation by making a gift during this university-wide giving campaign. When 30,000 EduGator alumni come together, there’s no stopping us.

C’mon EduGators, Get Up and Give!
