You Still Have Time To Give To Gators!

Your Participation Makes a Difference

There’s only 11 days remaining for you to ‘share the love’ to our students through the Give To Gators (G2G) Campaign.

Since the last update, faculty and staff contribution has increased to 26.5% participation with 285 donors! We ended the campaign at 34% last year and would like to beat last year’s success. So far, pledges and gifts in this campaign total $35,902.46. Imagine how many students we could help if we all participate!

Just a reminder that where and how much to give is your choice. Popular funds include Food for Change Market, UHD’s General Scholarship Fund, and campus favorites—the Library Excellence Fund and the IT Scholarship Fund. Joining the lineup is the new Determined Gator Fund.

Thank you to the following UHD offices for 100% participation:

  • Office of Study Abroad
  • Community Engagement & Serving Learning
  • Emergency Management
  • Office of Research & Sponsored Projects
  • UHD Police Department
  • Student Business Services

The G2G Campaign runs through March 31.
