About

The HWS 2017 Athletics Day of Donors (#ADOD) is a 24-hour giving challenge to support both William Smith and Hobart Athletics. All teams -- regardless of size -- can compete to win bonus cash up to $3,000. 

Each team has a donor participation goal (see list). Starting at 8 a.m. Monday, May 1, you can make a gift indicating your favorite team (up to 2 teams). You will be counted once toward the donor goal for each team you select. 

Bonus cash prizes of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 will go to the teams (3 each William Smith and Hobart) with the highest percent of the donor goal achieved at the close of the contest at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Show your pride! use our digital resource kit for images you can share to help spread the word. 

                                                            

Go Herons! Go Statesmen! 

P.S. If you have any difficulty making your gift, please call Wendy Barnhart at (315) 781-3725, barnhart@hws.edu, between 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Thank you!
