Talking Points

What is Stand Up & Holler: Gator Nation Giving Day

Stand Up & Holler: Gator Nation Giving Day is an all-day fundraising event, calling on the University of Florida alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents and families and friends to come together to support UF and all of its areas of positive impact in our state, nation and world.

What does a gift* support?

Everything! Gifts can be directed to the school, department, research initiative, campus activity or UF program that means the most to the donor, or it can be applied to an area of greatest need. What matters most is that every Gator gives and becomes part of UF’s positive impact on our community, country and world.

*The minimum gift to be counted for Gator Nation Giving Day is $1.

What is the goal?

On February 18, 2021, we call upon The Gator Nation® to stand up and holler as we look to support the university with 17,500 gifts.
