Your gift to UF/IFAS Extension Polk County provides direct support for local programs! A local team of UF/IFAS Extension professionals serves Polk County by connecting community members with science-based solutions for life's challenges.
Programs across the state include 4-H clubs for youth, lawn and garden support from local Master Gardener Volunteers, tools and resources for farmers, natural resource conservation strategies, healthy living skills for families in nutrition and finances, and so much more.
Stand Up & Holler is UF’s third annual giving day, a full 24-hour fundraising event, calling on all University of Florida alumni, students, faculty, staff, families and friends to come together to support UF and all of its areas of positive impact in our state, nation and world. The event takes place on Feb. 18, 2021, beginning at 12 a.m. EST and concluding at 11:59 p.m. PST.
Our goal is 20,000 gifts in 24 hours. Gifts can be directed to the school, department, research initiative, campus activity, UF program or an area of greatest need that means the most to you.
