Florida's 2011-12 budget is expected to increase $2.2 million in the upcoming year, and the University Athletic Association will give $6 million to the University, according to budget documents obtained today.

The contribution is part of an ongoing effort by UAA to give back to the school. Since 1990, the UAA has contributed over $60 million to the University of Florida.

The projected 2011-12 budget is $98.7 million.  Football game revenue is expected to be $2.3 million due to an increase in season

The athletic department expects to receive $36 million in donations from Gator Boosters, Inc.

SEC revenue from bowl games, television contracts, and championships are projected to be $17 million. Football ($19.7 million) and Basketball ($2 million) ticket sales will generate $21.7 million for the UAA.
