Amphitheatre Challenge

Bird's EyeThe Mary Morton Parsons Foundation in Richmond, Virginia, has offered a challenge grant of $125,000 to support restoration of Mary Washington’s historic amphitheatre. The award has the potential to help Mary Washington get closer to that $3-million goal to restore this cherished landmark.

To “unlock” the special grant, UMW alumni, parents, and friends must make NEW gifts to the Amphitheatre Challenge totaling at least $125,000 by May 1, 2017.  As of April 25, 2017, a total of $114,900 has been raised. That means UMW needs your help to secure $10,100 before the challenge deadline.

Help restore this cherished landmark. Make your gift today! (To ensure your gift is counted, be sure to select “Amphitheatre Restoration” from the drop-down menu in the “Your Gift” section of the form.)
