Give to Gators Update

Dear UHD Community,

As you are keenly aware, our students have the remarkable strength of character that drives them to complete their degrees while balancing family, work and other responsibilities. They are absolutely committed to earning degrees to create a better future for themselves and their families.

I speak less often about the comparable determination of our remarkable faculty and staff, but I see it as well. It is evident in those of you who go the extra mile to help students navigate their education at UHD. You are a source of guidance and encouragement that is a hallmark of student success.

I also see your dedication to UHD when you commit to the Give to Gators campaign. To date, 26 percent of our faculty and staff have contributed approximately $44,328. That is quite an accomplishment! Your gifts support programs, scholarships, the Gator Relief Fund, the W.I. Dykes Library, and many other UHD priorities. But, we set an ambitious goal of 60 percent participation, and we need 340 more gifts to reach that goal. I believe in you—your grit and determination. Please help me, and UHD, reach a new level of success in our annual Give to Gator campaign.

If you’ve already made a gift, I thank you. If you’re still considering any level of contribution, please give now. Take a moment to make your pledge through payroll deduction by visiting the Give to Gators website (login with network username and password), use a pledge card for cash/check or make a credit card gift.

I extend a special recognition to those departments that have achieved high participation giving.

The following departments are at 100%:
Business Affairs
Conference & Event Services
Environmental Health & Safety
Honors Program
Security Management
Student Activities

The following departments are over 50%:

Every dollar contributes to the success of UHD students and to a stronger University.
