Class of 1997 - March Madness Challenge

This campaign ended on April 01, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Davidson College by clicking here!

With the Atlantic 10 tournament starting this week and March Madness in the air, your 1997 Class Ambassadors would like to announce the 2019 edition of the ’97 March Madness Challenge!

The ’97 March Madness Challenge is an opportunity to get our competitive juices flowing as our very own Wildcats claw their way through the madness of college basketball in March.  We are challenging you and the rest of our classmates to see which freshman hall can garner the most support for The Fund for Davidson!  The competition is simple: the freshman hall with the highest participation by April 1 will win bragging rights until next year’s Atlantic 10 tournament!  

4th Richardson won the competition last year.  Will they reign supreme or will another class take the throne?

When making your gift, be sure to select your freshman hall from the drop down menu as you fill out the “Affiliation” section of the gift form.  Show your Davidson Spirit with a little basketball-inspired philanthropy and don’t forget to spread the word to your fellow hall mates!  

If you’ve already given this year and would like to take part in the competition, send an email to and we'll count your gift toward the competition totals!

May the best freshman hall win!
