Why Give to UF?

Why Give to UF?

If you could improve someone's life, would you? If you could make the world better wouldn't you?

Because You Care — No matter your passion, UF likely has academic, research and service programs in that area. All of which need your support. Only four U.S. universities have as many programs of study on one campus as UF. Giving through UF may put your mark on humankind’s next big breakthrough, serve those in need or prepare young people to be tomorrow’s business and civic leaders.

It’s a Sound Investment —Your investment fuels innovative research on a national scale. UF ranks seventh among all universities — public and private — in the number of U.S. patents and 15th in research and development spending. The countless scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, works of art and literature, and advances in agricultural and consumer sciences benefit our nation, our state, our families and friends.

It Feels Right — When you give to UF, you are supporting more than 50,000 students who will become doctors, business owners, artists, engineers, attorneys, nurses and teachers. Your gift expresses your solidarity with other Gators and everyone whose life has been touched by a Gator.

The Multiplier Effect — Every gift, large and small, matters. Your gift to UF adds to the gifts of other donors, empowering you to change the world far more than you could alone.
