On Thursday, March 28, UCF Day of Giving will rally together faculty, staff, alumni, parents, students and friends who all love and believe in UCF.

Members of the UCF community are encouraged to support what they love about the university by making a gift to any fund of their choice. And with UCF’s commitment to excellence in everything from the arts to science to research to athletics to its students, there really is a fund for almost anything.

During last year’s first-ever Day of Giving, the community surpassed UCF’s 24-hour goal of 1,000 donors just after lunch. So the Knights have upped the ante this year and set the bar at 3,000 donors.

Giving a gift on this day unlocks thousands of dollars in extra support for UCF — culminating in an extra $60,000 toward the total raised if UCF reaches its goal. Every donor is essential in helping make this happen.

Giving a gift on Thursday is laying the groundwork now for the next big breakthrough in research, for the next star student-athlete to break records, for the next generation of trailblazers to say they were built by UCF.

So support what you love by making your contribution. If you feel like sharing the love on social media after you make a gift, include #GiveToUCF in your post.
