International Gator Day

All Strong for Our Community
19th Annual International Gator Day
Saturday, May 19, 2018

On May 19, 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 19 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.
