What is the UF Campaign for Charities?
The University of Florida Campaign for Charities (UFCC) is the annual employee giving campaign. All UF employees can participate by making charitable donations though payroll deduction, cash, check, credit card or stock contribution. For the last 11 years, UF employees have given almost $1 million annually to charities serving our region.
Who are the Agencies?
Eighty-nine charities participated in the 2015 campaign. These include the agencies of the United Way of North Central Florida, Community Health Charities of Florida and other independent agencies. To participate, agencies must be nonprofit and must address health, social service, diversity, relief, development or environmental issues of local importance. Agencies must apply each year for the campaign and be approved by meeting all the requirements of the application. This year, we have 100 participating agencies. The list of agencies participating in the 2016 campaign is available on our Agency Page.
When is the campaign?
The campaign is held each fall and is divided into a Leadership Campaign and General Campaign. In 2016, the Leadership Campaign will run from September 5th-23rd, and the General Campaign will run from October 3rd-21st.
How to participate?
During the campaign, UF employees will receive e-mails from the UFCC with links to the online contribution site. UF employee donations may be made through payroll deduction or by check, cash, bank card, or direct bill. Pledge cards are available for those who do not have e-mail. You can also volunteer to help your college or department’s committee member with special events and collecting donations.
