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

Gators across the world are donating to UF’s programs for the 5th annual Gator Nation Giving Day. University of Florida leaders hope to bring in 27,000 gifts in 24 hours.

Stand up and Holler reaches Gators in over 70 countries and from every state in the U.S. Giving Day itself begins at 12:00 a.m. EST and concludes at 11:59 p.m. PST, on Thursday Feb 16th this year. There are over 400 charitable options to choose from where your monetary donation can do the most good or the main 'Greatest Needs' fund if you can't choose from among all the options.

Last year University of Florida alumni, students, faculty, staff, friends and families set a UF record during Stand Up & Holler, Gator Nation Giving Day. This year UF's goal is ambitious – 27,000 gifts in 24 hours. Whether online or in-person, alumni and anyone can donate to a college, program, or organization of their choice.

The gifts received have a major impact on UF. Stand Up and Holler donors support inspired programming, innovative research and experiential learning opportunities so that students and faculty are fully empowered to pursue their passions.
