About

At a time of great uncertainty, one thing is more apparent than ever—that generosity brings people together.

May 5th is a day dedicated to global giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID19 for our Florida Tech Students. 

Florida Tech is dedicated to supporting its students in need, and the money raised during this effort will be used as an emergency fund for those who are experiencing financial burden during this time and are at risk of not finishing their education.

The importance of giving goes beyond the dollar amount. The level of participation from alumni, faculty, staff, friends, and family are who make this day special.
