The Million Dollar Challenge News


<< Back

UPDATE 6/21/13 4:00 pm:

Thank you to all of our wonderfully supportive and generous alumnae/i. Your response to the past three days has been overwhelming and the competition exciting! The gap on the Million Dollar Challenge has been closed considerably by your participation and support and for that we are truly grateful.

Your generous contributions of new or increased gifts have brought us to $945,000 of the $1,000,000 needed for the challenge. Over the past 3 days, we have had donations from over 232 alumnae/i and friends. We are almost to the finish line and with gifts still being sent in online and snail mail, we are leaving the books on the challenge open until July 12, 2013. It is not too late!
