Each fall, UF sponsors the UF Campaign for Charities (UFCC) to raise money for nonprofit, health and human service-oriented organizations in Gainesville and surrounding areas. The campaign allows employees to give to one or more campaign charities through payroll deduction, cash, check, or bank card.
Since 1993, the UFCC has provided employees with a convenient way to make a big difference in our community. In each of the last 15 years, the campaign has brought in almost $1,000,000.00 in contributions.
All money raised through the UFCC supports the work of agencies in our region that provide a wide variety of services ranging from child care, recreational opportunities, counseling, and legal help to environmental protection, disease prevention, and medical assistance. In addition, some of these agencies partner with UF through the funding of research projects focused on curing disease or improving the quality of life for those afflicted with disease. The agencies in the UFCC cover such a wide spectrum of support services that it is likely that every one of us has been touched by at least one of these agencies. The 2020 Campaign begins in the fall and we hope we will have a record-setting year as UF gives back to our community.
