This year we're celebrating your 30th Reunion! In honor of your reunion year, we invite you to join other classmates in making your special reunion year gift.
The Reunion Committee for the Class of 1994 has set a class goal to raise $30,000 for the Campus Tree Fund in honor of our 30th Reunion. Mary Washington is recognized as a Tree Campus by the Arbor Day Foundation, an honor bestowed upon colleges and universities that prioritize the health of their campus trees. Trees make our beautiful campus more livable, healthy, and beautiful, providing benefits that will last long beyond our lifetimes. Please consider making a special gift in honor of our 30th Reunion to the Campus Tree Fund.
Your gift, no matter the size, strengthens Mary Washington, and a strong Mary Washington benefits us all. Whether you give $19.94 or $1,994, every gift is critical to the success of the University and ultimately its students.
While our class is promoting giving to the Campus Tree Fund this year, please know that gifts to all designations are appreciated and count toward the Reunion Giving Competition. This is a friendly competition between classes celebrating their 10th-50th reunions. The competition includes three categories: highest total giving, highest giving participation rate, and the highest number of donors. Make your gift today to help your class reach the top of the leaderboard!
Ways to Give
One-Time Gifts: Make a one-time gift today to the Fund for Mary Washington or to any other area you would like to support.
Recurring Gifts: Monthly giving is the easiest and most convenient way to support UMW. It allows you to spread out your gift, 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."
Matching Gifts: Many companies offer gift-matching programs that can double or triple employees’ or retirees’ personal gifts to the Annual Fund. Matching gifts are an important source of support for the Annual Fund. Find out if your company has a matching gift program by contacting your Human Resources Department or by checking the matching gift database. If your company does match charitable contributions, request the appropriate form and send it to UMW along with your gift. Many companies also match gifts from retirees, spouses, and outside directors. When UMW receives the matching gift from your company, that gift will be combined with your gift to determine your gift club recognition level.
Multi-Year Pledges: A multi-year commitment of any amount per year for up to 5 years can be made to the Annual Fund. For reunion campaigns, the full amount of a multi-year pledge will be recognized for the class’s reunion gift. To make a multi-year pledge, please fill out this form and submit to the address at the bottom of the form. For any additional questions please contact the Office of University Advancement at email@example.com or 540-654-1024.
Stock and Securities: Download/print a form with specific directions to ensure your gifts are transferred and credited properly.
RMD from IRA or Retirement Fund: Designate your required minimum distribution from your IRA or other retirement fund to UMW, avoiding taxes. Please contact Lee Ann Reaser for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Planned Giving: Make a gift through your will or estate. More information about planned giving is available here.
