William Holt Terry Scholars Program Challenge

This campaign ended on July 01, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Davidson College by clicking here!

At the April Terry Reunion on campus, the college shared the news of Will Terry’s extraordinary generosity to the Terry Scholars Program through his estate, positioning the scholarship to go to a full-tuition award with the Class of 2021, as Will always aspired for it to be. DT intended for his sacrificial generosity to inspire the generosity of the full Terry community as they assume financial responsibility for the program.

David Waddill ’81, who helped convince Will in 1994 that a leadership scholarship should be his legacy and who has supported it ever since, has generously issued a challenge.  For every dollar a Terry Scholar, Terry Fellow or Terry parent gives to the program between now and June 30, he will match it, up to a total of $100,000.

Please consider a stretch gift to help us meet David Waddill’s incredible challenge!  And please consider making a pledge for next year as well.

If you would like to make a gift by a method other than credit card (e.g. recurring bank draft, check, or securities), please contact Stephanie Glaser ‘92 directly at stglaser@davidson.edu or 704-894-2114.  Every gift counts toward claiming the challenge, and the totals on this campaign include gifts made by other methods. 

Note: The video above is from Will's 80th birthday celebration.
