2016 Lancer Giving Madness

By Amy Harris

This campaign ended on March 20, 2016, but you can still make a gift to Longwood University by clicking here!

The madness of March isn't reserved solely for the hardwood. Once again this March, the Lancer Club will launch Lancer Giving Madness, a one-week, online giving challenge between Longwood's 14 varsity sports and the cheerleading squad. The goal is to encourage greater cultivation of financial supporters of Longwood athletics through a crowdfunding effort with gifts targeted to a specific team. 

What is Lancer Giving Madness? A one-week giving challenge amongst Longwood's athletic programs to cultivate the most $5 or greater donations. 

How Does Lancer Giving Madness Work?Teams compete based on participation, not on total dollar amount raised. Matching prizes are available for teams who meet specific benchmarks or win various contests, including most donations and greatest alumni participation. Each team keeps what they raise for their operating budget.
