Friends and Alumni of UF RecSports


UF’s Giving Day, a 24-hour event, is calling on all University of Florida students, alumni, faculty, staff, families and friends to come together to support UF and all of its areas of positive impact in our state, nation and world. The event takes place on Feb. 15, 2024, beginning at 12 a.m. EST and concluding at 11:59 p.m. PST. 175 gifts is our goal for this year. Giving Day is about supporting the UF community and enriching the experiences of every Gator. The Department of Recreational Sports promotes holistic health and lifelong wellbeing for all students. Your gift ensures that future generations of Gators have access to inclusive recreational experiences and opportunities, specifically by: 

  • Allowing RecSports to allocate resources where they are most immediately needed. 
  • Reducing financial barriers for students in need who wish to participate in impactful adventure trip experiences. 
  • Supporting students who may struggle with positive behavior change, weight management, body image.

Ways to give

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”  -Winston Churchill. 

 Partner with the University of Florida and the Department of Recreational Sports as we promote holistic health and well-being to the UF students and UF Community. The gifts you give will be used to enhance the services we provide for the Gator Nation: such as expanding program offerings to serve a greater number of students and/or students in need, supplementing student fees to reduce financial barriers to participation, and supporting facility and capital improvement projects. Every gift will help us move the Gator Nation to engage in lifelong wellbeing.
