Are You up for the Challenge?

We are coming up on the Founders Day Challenge this February 20. It’s all about supporting students and we need your help. We are looking for ambassadors who will rally support for the student experience – from classroom to dorm room and everything in between. 

Being an ambassador is easy, flexible and makes a big difference. During this 24-hour challenge, we need your voice to spread the excitement throughout the UHart community and your network. It means being an insider, making a Founders Day Challenge gift (of any size) and encouraging others to do the same. This could be what works for you:  

  • watching our social media posts and sharing them on yours
  • posting a video telling your peers why you give
  • stopping by the Founders Day Fair in the GSU
  • asking your Uhart network to make a Founders Day gift

Last year, our goal was 1,000 gifts in 48 hours. With an amazing group of ambassadors, 1,460 students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends made gifts, for a total of $187,870. This year, our goal is to do it in half as much time –1,000 gifts in 24 hours! We cannot do this without you.
