Gator Giving Day 2022

Last year, in a unified show of Gator goodness, thousands of University of Florida alumni, students, faculty, staff, friends and families set a UF record during Stand Up & Holler, the third annual Gator Nation Giving Day.

On February 17, 2022, we call upon Gators everywhere to once again stand up for UF by making a gift of any size to the college, unit, research area or program that means the most to you. Our goal this year is ambitious – 23,000 gifts in 24 hours – but every donation supports UF’s far-reaching work and Top 5 status

What is “Stand Up and Holler?”

Stand Up & Holler is UF’s fourth annual giving day, a full 24-hour fundraising event, calling on all University of Florida alumni, students, faculty, staff, families and friends to come together to support UF and all of its areas of positive impact in our state, nation and world. The event takes place on Feb. 17, 2022, beginning at 12 a.m. EST and concluding at 11:59 p.m. PST.
