About

The HWS 2021 Athletics Day of Donors (#HWSADOD) is a 24-hour giving challenge to support both Hobart and William Smith Athletics. Your giving provides resources to every student-athlete who is a member of our intercollegiate athletic teams. While COVID-19 may have called a timeout for competitions, our Herons and Statesmen are busy training and practicing so they can be ready when games resume. Your gift today helps ensure our student-athletes have a robust team experience. In addition, giving opportunities are available to support our strength and conditioning and sports medicine programs. When you give to Hobart athletics you become a member of the Statesmen Athletic Association. When you give to William Smith Athletics you become a member of the Heron Society.  

James F. โ€™56, L.H.D. โ€™12 and Cynthia L. Caird L.H.D. โ€™12 generously funded the Caird Challenge (#CAIRDCHALLENGE), putting $25,000 in bonus cash for Hobart and William Smith athletic teams up for grabs!

Caird Challenge bonus cash will be awarded by college to:

  • The top three teams with the highest percentage of dollar goal
  • Two teams with the best video (judged by Jim and Cindy Caird)

In addition, the Caird Challenge bonus cash will be awarded to:

  • Each team that meets their donor goal

You will be counted once toward the dollar goal for each team you select. 

Show your pride! Go Statesmen! Go Herons!

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

*Offline gifts will be counted after the close of the giving day to ensure accuracy. Note that the leaderboard may vary slightly from actual numbers because of this.

The Heron Society and Statesmen Athletic Association Boards of Directors are excited to announce that they are partnering with the Caird Challenge, and helping each team reach their goals with a gift of $500 per team! The generosity of SAA and Heron Society members over the years have strengthened our athletics programs. These teams behind our Hobart and William Smith teams are crucial to the success of our programs. Based on the team(s) you support, every gift TODAY will provide membership in the Heron Society or SAA.
