DONOR GOAL = MET! 🙌


WOW, UCF FAM - YOU DID IT!
We issued a challenge to meet 2,021 in 24 hours and you met it with a few hours to spare! That's why the UCF community is THE GREATEST! 

Thank you to alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty and staff who have supported Our Greatest Day of Giving today. With your generosity, we unlocked a $320,800 challenge gift sponsored by the UCF Foundation Board. That's a whole lot of philanthropy that will have a transformational impact.

How many total donors can we achieve with a few hours left to go?  Share the campaign with your Knights network and let's see how many we can achieve. Together we make the greatest impact.

THANK YOU, KNIGHTS!

HALFWAY TO GOAL


Thank you to everyone who has contributed to Our Greatest Day of Giving so far! We've made it halfway to our goal. And with this milestone, we've unlocked $30,850 sponsored by members of the UCF Alumni Board.

Momentum is on our side, but we still need you to help us reach our 2,021 donor goal. That means we need more Knights — and yes, that definitely includes you — to be a part of Our Greatest Day of Giving!

Your participation matters — it matters to the athlete who relies on a scholarship or the diversity initiative that needs funding; to the student in crisis who needs a hand to get on their feet or the student shopping at Knights Helping Knights Pantry for their next meal. Today you have the opportunity to make a brighter tomorrow at UCF.

And when we hit that 2021st donor, we will unlock a collective challenge gift from members of the UCF Foundation Board of more than $300,000. $300,000!

So if you give right now, literally any amount you can give, you are bringing us one step closer to unlocking a massive donor-sponsored challenge gift that will have a transformational impact.

If you already made your gift, thank you! UCF Day of Giving is making a BIG impact. Share the campaign with Knights Nation and follow our progress all day long!

The Largest Gift in Day of Giving History

While Day of Giving is an important day for all of Knight Nation, it is an especially great day for Business Knights and anyone connected to the College of Business.
 
Today the College of Business received a $250,000 gift from Jessica ’80 and Ken Blume. This astoundingly generous gift is the largest UCF has received in Day of Giving history. Jessica is an active member of the Integrated Business Board and was named to the College of Business Hall of Fame in 2019. 
 
It is not too late to join Jessica and Ken and contribute to Our Greatest Day of Giving! Our goal is to reach 2,021 donors, so every gift matters and every donor is essential.
 
Invest in your alma mater today to create a lasting impact on your favorite area of UCF. 💛💛💛
