That's a Wrap: 2023 Gator Nation Giving Day

Thank you, Gators!

February 17, 2023

We did it! The fifth “Stand Up and Holler: Gator Nation Giving Day” was held on Thursday, February 16. On this day, Gators from around the world donated to various causes across UF and in support of the College of Health & Human Performance.

A goal of 27,000 gifts for UF was shattered. In total, the university collected more than 28,000 gifts and HHP collected more than 375 gifts. Gators came through in flying colors! Your generosity showed you are #AllForTheGators.

Alumni donations are factored into the U.S. News and World Report Best University Ranking, and participation in fundraising helps UF remain Top 5 strong.

On Giving Day, two challenges were unlocked for additional funds from dedicated alumni and friends of the college providing additional $5,000 gifts for the Eric Friedheim Tourism Institute and Institute for Coaching Excellence when each fund received 25 gifts.

THANK YOU for your support. Your gifts help us advance how we live, work, and play! Read more and view the leaderboards at
