Giving Tuesday Exceeded Goal!

We did it! Thanks to the incredible efforts of so many people, we exceeded our goal of 200 donors for the Nov. 29 Giving Tuesday event, a global day dedicated to philanthropy.

We received 228 gifts from 224 donors in 21 states , including:

  • 47 young alumni (graduates of the last decade)
  • 31 reunion alumni (class years ending in 2 and 7)
  • 50 parents of current UMW students
  • 11 faculty and staff

Donors gave a total of $45,550, and $22,143 of that was in unrestricted giving to the Fund for Mary Washington. Of the 224 donors, 164 designated their gifts to the Fund for Mary Washington–a great show of support for the University’s mission and leadership. Sixty donors gave to other UMW causes, including academic departments, athletic teams, scholarships, the Amphitheatre restoration, and more.

Thank you to all who made a gift or signed up to give through payroll deduction in honor of Giving Tuesday!
