Mary Wash Giving Day


Mary Wash Giving Day (#MaryWashDay) was a 24-hour online day of giving to the University of Mary Washington. The day began at 12 a.m. on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, and went until 11:59 p.m. that night. This date was chosen because it was the 109th anniversary of the University’s 1908 founding. We set a goal of 654 donors on Mary Wash Giving Day, and generous supporters came forward with more than $42,000 in challenge matches to inspire others to give. The original goal and the stretch goal of 1,000 donors were exceeded, with 1,090 donors making 1,218 gifts. Thank you to all who made it an historic day for Mary Washington!
