June update - Only three weeks left to participate in the inaugural 'Pride for Progam' Alumni Challenge! Join the nearly 200 student-athlete alumni who have already given and help your team rise up the leaderboard for additional Eagle Club funds. The final standings will be announced the first week of July.
The Eagle Club is excited to announce a new annual initiative to increase student-athlete alumni engagement and giving. The 'Pride for Program' Alumni Challenge is an opportunity for each UMW athletic program to establish multi-generational relationships, linked by a common loyalty to the sport they love.
Help us build on Mary Washington's tradition of excellence and pay it forward today!
How 'Pride for Program' works:
Mary Washington athletics alumni will be competing to earn prize money for their team. All gifts donated from student-athlete alumni from July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017 will count toward the challenge. Scoring will be based on overall athletics alumni giving percentages for each team. Director of Athletics Ken Tyler and the Eagle Club will award the top three programs with additional foundation funds!
Giving Percentage is based on number of donors of a specific team divided by the total number of athletics alumni of the specific team. Each sport's alumni giving percentage will be calculated quarterly and then ranked in descending order.
The sport program with the highest alumni giving percentage on June 30 (last day of fiscal calendar) will take home the first place prize.
$1,000 - Highest Alumni Giving Percentage
$750 - 2nd Highest Alumni Giving Percentage
$500 - 3rd Highest Alumni Giving Percentage
