The University of Mary Washington is asking alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, and friends to go ‘all in” for its third annual giving day on Tuesday, March 19, 2019.
On Mary Wash Giving Day, also known as #MaryWashDay, donors can make gifts to areas across the University from midnight to 11:59 p.m. at givingday.umw.edu. Challenges and matches funded by generous donors will be “unlocked” throughout the day, multiplying the impact of each gift. The University has set a goal of 3,500 gifts, topping last year’s Giving Day tally of 2,987 gifts totaling more than $449,000. On March 19, each gift will be tracked on dynamic leaderboards on the site, providing real-time updates on progress toward the participation goal.
This year’s theme of “All in” reflects the collective nature of Giving Day and the passion of Mary Washington students, who go all in as scholars, leaders, and engaged community members. Gifts made during the 24-hour celebration will benefit students by providing funding for academic, athletic, arts, leadership, service, career, and cultural programs. Donors who wish to support the University’s areas of greatest need are asked to make a gift to the Fund for Mary Washington.
