All Strong for Our Community

20th Annual International Gator Month
May 2020

This year, more than ever in recent history, our communities need the support and service of the Gator Nation®.  To recognize this unique and unprecedented time, UFAA has designated May of 2020 as International Gator Month, a month in which Gator Clubs® and Affiliate Groups around the world unite to utilize the size and spirit of the Gator Nation® to positively impact local communities.  Although we are required to remain socially distant at this time, Gators will join together virtually to support projects and programs within their local communities, using their time and talents to serve others.

The Gator Nation® is strongest when we work together for a common cause. Please join the University of Florida Alumni Association in May 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 to receive updates of projects and events hosted by your local Gator Club, both for International Gator Month and throughout the year..
  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.


As this annual event approaches, each Club's initiative will be posted below.

Don't see an International Gator Day activity in your area? Host your own local service project and we will list it on our website! Please contact our office to have your event listed.

For more information, please contact Shirley Lynn at slynn@ufalumni.ufl.edu or 352-392-7619.
