New Fundraising Opportunity for Students

web-465-labThe Advancement Office is offering a brand new tool to help students receive special funding for projects, research, and/or organizational activities beginning this year.

The UMW Community Outreach Initiative is a grassroots campaign allowing students, in need of funding, a chance to be featured on the UMW website. Through an application process, students will submit their ideas, and a committee consisting of UMW Alumni and Advancement staff will select four qualifying applicants. The Advancement Office, in conjunction with the selected student or group, will then promote and encourage unique fundraising opportunities to encourage giving from alumni, parents, friends, and current students. The showcase promotion for each project ends when fully funded or at the close of the campaign.

For more information and to access the application, please visit http://giving.umw.edu/umw-community-outreach-initiative.
