The countdown continues for the Founders Day Challenge. The goal is to raise $107,000 for the Fund for Mary Washington by March 14 in honor of UMW’s 107th anniversary.

As of Feb. 16, alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty and staff have contributed more than $32,000 toward the goal.

One of seven priorities in the Mary Washington First Campaign, the Fund for Mary Washington is vital in filling the gaps between UMW’s operating budget from the Commonwealth of Virginia and actual needs for students and academic programs.
