Community Contributions

The University of Florida’s culture of caring extends beyond campus to our community of Greater Gainesville and beyond. Through its annual employee giving campaign, called the University of Florida Campaign for Charities (UFCC), employees have given near $1 million annually to charities serving the region for over a decade. Programs such as the UF Community Veterinary Outreach Program help shelter animals get the treatments they need to become adoptable, rescue groups get care they could not otherwise afford and veterinary students get hands-on experience. Additionally, the university is currently gathering input from the community to plan the long-term future growth of the university and the Greater Gainesville area.
