Success!

We reached our goal of 2,000 donors and unlocked $100,000 in matching funds from members of the Board of Trustees! Thank you to all who have given so far! 

We still have challenge funds available for some class years and affinities and will be accepting gifts until midnight CST. How high can we go?

Over halfway there!

We’ve surpassed 1,000 donors. Amazing! Thanks to everyone who has already given today!  But we can’t stop now. Help us get to 2,000 donors by sharing with your Mac network.

Also, if you know any alumni in Montana, Arkansas or Alabama, send them our way! Those are the only states from which we don't yet have donors.
