If 108 members of the Class of 2016 make a gift of any amount to any area of the University, your class will reach 10% participation!
While a gift to any area on campus benefits students and the University, this year we are actively advocating for contributions to the Fund for Mary Washington. As the University's unrestricted fund, your gift to the Fund for Mary Washington allows University leadership to have the resources necessary to ensure adequate funding for areas across campus, ensuring we have the best faculty to continue the level of excellence in our classrooms our alumni expect, and provides the resources necessary for our students to succeed.
Your gift, no matter the size, strengthens Mary Washington, and a strong Mary Washington benefits us all. Whether you give $5, $50, or $500, every gift is critical to the success of the University and ultimately our students.
You can make a one-time gift or you can set up a monthly gift schedule which is the easiest and most convenient way to support UMW while making less of an immediate impact on your finances but a significant impact for UMW students. Break your gifts into monthly, quarterly, twice-a-year, or yearly payments by filling out our online giving form here. Under the section titled "Gift Frequency" select option 2: "I would like to break out my gift into scheduled payments."
Alumni of the last decade have a special opportunity to join our President's Council. Usually a gift of $2,500, members of the classes of 2013-2022 can make a gift of $500 or more to the Fund for Mary Washington and join our President's Council. President’s Council members are among our most loyal supporters. With your gift, you are making a vote of confidence in the University and our leadership. President’s Council members are invited to special events throughout the year. You can break out your gift into monthly payments and be a President's Council member as long as the full $500 is fulfilled by the end of our fiscal year, June 30th.
