Hey, young alumni! You and only YOU can unlock an additional $4,000 just by making a gift on Day of Giving. We need your support to make this happen! Two of your classmates from the 2002-2017 era have stepped up to provide $4,000 in challenge match funds. These funds can only be unlocked once we receive 30 more gifts from alumni who graduated in the last 15 years. Gifts of all sizes count-make yours and then encourage your classmates to join you!
Want to make an even larger impact on Day of Giving? If we reach $10,000 of support raised within this hour, another $10,000 in challenge match funds will be unlocked. Set an alarm and make plans to hop online in the evening to take part in this final challenge!
