International Gator Day






22nd Annual International Gator Day
May 14, 2022


UFAA has designated Saturday, May 14, 2022, as International Gator Day, a day 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.  Gators will join together 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 on May 14, 2022, to show the world our service, community and impact.

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 or Affiliate Group, both for International Gator Day and throughout the year.
  2. Find your local Gator Club® or Affiliate Group on the list below and volunteer for their service project.
  3. If your local Gator Club® or Affiliate Group is not having an International Gator Day activity, let us know and start your own.


As this annual event approaches, each club's or group'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 notify our office to have your event listed.
