One Month Left: x2 Match to Beyond the Classroom Endowment

Beyond the Classroom Endowment

You know firsthand the value of high-impact learning experiences at Mary Washington — undergraduate research, independent study, study abroad, and internships. We created the Beyond the Classroom Endowment to ensure that UMW students will always have these meaningful opportunities to apply and expand their learning.

I am grateful to Dr. Cathie Woteki ’69 and her husband Tom Woteki for matching all gifts to the Beyond the Classroom Endowment through the end of July. Generous donors have already given more than $26,000 since the match was announced in late May, and their total impact exceeds $50,000 thanks to this dollar-for-dollar match. Overall, we are about two-thirds of the way to our target of $250,000 by the end of 2021, with an ultimate goal of $1 million.

I hope you will take a moment to hear about the impact of gifts to the Beyond the Classroom Endowment in this short video message from Cathie. If you have not already given, please consider donating before the match ends July 31. Thank you for all of the ways you support Mary Washington students!

With gratitude,

Dr. Keith Mellinger, Dean
College of Arts and Sciences
