Mary Wash Giving Day is March 19!

Mary Wash Giving Day is March 19. Make your gift at!

Faculty and staff are asked to go “all in” for UMW on our third annual Giving Day, to be held Tuesday, March 19.

On Mary Wash Giving Day, also known as #MaryWashDay, donors can make gifts to areas across the University from midnight to 11:59 p.m. at Challenges and matches funded by generous donors will be “unlocked” throughout the day, multiplying the impact of each gift.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to stop by the Giving Day Headquarters in the University Center between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. March 19 for free food, prizes, games, and a photo booth.

The University has set a Giving Day goal of 3,500 gifts, topping last year’s tally of 2,987. On March 19, each gift will be tracked on dynamic leaderboards on the Giving Day website, providing real-time updates on progress toward the participation goal.

Donors may choose any area of the University to support with their Giving Day gifts. Gifts made during the 24-hour celebration will benefit students by providing funding for academic, athletic, arts, leadership, service, career, and cultural programs. Donors who wish to support the University’s areas of greatest need are asked to give to the Fund for Mary Washington.
