Appreciation Day at UCF

Coordinated by the Student Philanthropy Council, Appreciation Day is a chance to educate students about the role private giving plays in the UCF experience.


Tuesday, February 10, was Appreciation Day at UCF, and nearly 250 students took a few moments to express their thanks to donors with personal notes. The effort was coordinated by the Student Philanthropy Council, which manned a tent outside the Student Union to educate other students about the impact of donor support on the student experience at UCF. The council also had a videographer on hand for students who wanted to say thanks on camera too.

Appreciation Day was part of Philanthropy Week at UCF, a five-day campus-wide campaign to promote the spirit of philanthropy on campus, raise awareness about the impact of private support, and cultivate a tradition of giving back among students. Founded in 2013, the Student Philanthropy Council is a student-led organization advised by UCF Foundation staff.
