On April 15, Argos around the world including alumni, students, families, friends, faculty and staff, will rally together and support the University of West Florida on Day of Giving 2021. This year, the Battle of the Decades competition will pit alumni generations and University supporters against one another in an effort to raise the most funds in support of our students.

This year, our goal is to raise funds that provide scholarships for students continuing their educational journey at UWF this fall and beyond. Giving to student scholarships is a direct way to benefit those we care most about—our students.

What better way to show our students we care than with an overwhelming amount of alumni support? On April 15, the Battle of the Decades commences with a 24-hour virtual fundraising initiative to see which UWF alumni decade can raise the most money and bring in the most gifts for their alma mater. You can check your decade’s progress throughout the day on the leaderboard above. Not a UWF alumni but still want to support? Support the alumni decade that means the most to you. It could be when you first visited the UWF campus, attended a UWF event or when you made your first gift to support our University.

We are bringing back our beloved Day of Giving socks with an exclusive Argo print only available for Day of Giving 2021! Make a gift of $30 or more and you will receive an exclusive pair. We have limited quantities of the socks so make your gift early!

Don’t forget to share your support for UWF Day of Giving by posting on social media with #UWFDayofGiving. You can also use the graphics on our social media page to show additional support for our school.
