UF/IFAS Advancement

UF/IFAS Advancement

Extension is a partnership between state, federal, and county governments to provide scientific knowledge and expertise to the public. The University of Florida (UF), together with Florida A&M University (FAMU), administers the Florida Cooperative Extension Service. UF/IFAS Extension encompasses thousands of faculty members, scientists, educators, administrative staff, and volunteers, all working to provide solutions for your life. Please consider making an impact on Florida's communities through a gift to UF/IFAS Extension.



Create a Local Legacy


Create an endowment to provide lasting support for UF/IFAS Extension programs in your Florida county

Endowments are gifts that are invested to provide annual support for a program in perpetuity, at the state or county level. We hope to establish at least one endowment for each of Florida's 67 counties and the Seminole Tribe.

Donors choose the purpose and name of the endowment; for example, the Jimmy and Benita S. Boyd St. Johns County 4-H Endowment benefits the 4-H Youth Development Program in St. John's County, while the Escambia County Master Gardeners Endowment benefits the Florida Master Gardener Program in Escambia County. The minimum endowment amount is $30,000, generating approximately $1,200 annually. Gifts can be pledged over five years or can be established through an estate plan. For more information, please contact Sara Olson at (352) 294-7869 or

Florida 4-H Camps


4-H Camping provides young people with opportunities to grow through outdoor activities and hands-on, learn-by-doing educational programs. Each year, more than 3,000 youth spend a week or more at one of Florida 4-H's three camps learning new skills, developing self-confidence, making lifelong friends and having a lot of fun. You can support 4-H Camping with a gift here: Florida 4-H Camp Development Fund.
