International Gator Day

All Strong for Our Community
18th Annual International Gator Day
Saturday, May 20, 2017

On May 20, Gator Clubs® from around the world will unite to utilize the size and spirit of The Gator Nation® to positively impact local communities. Each club will take on a project that is important to their community and will volunteer the time and talents of their members to serve others. This year various non-profit organizations such as The Wounded Warriors, Covenant House of Florida, and Best Friends Pet Adoption Service will receive assistance from The Gator Nation.

The Gator Nation is strongest when we work together for a common cause. Please join the University of Florida Alumni Association on May 20 to show the world we are All Strong for our Community.

How you can be a part of International Gator Day:

  1. Join the University of Florida Alumni Association.
  2. Find your local Gator Club and volunteer for their service project.
  3. If your local Gator Club is not having an International Gator Day activity, start your own.
