The 2018 Bulldog Challenge

This campaign ended on March 31, 2018, but you can still make a gift to University of North Carolina Asheville by clicking here!

It’s Bulldog vs. Bulldog all month long as each UNC Asheville team competes in the annual Bulldog Challenge. Make a gift to support your favorite UNC Asheville athletic program. The team with the most donors on March 31 will be crowned our 2018 Bulldog Challenge Champs. Will your team emerge victorious? You decide! 

Last year’s Bulldog Challenge was historic, raising more than $100,000 to support current programs and students-athletes. We are counting on YOU to help break that record this year and continue our winning streak!

Your gift directly impacts today’s scholar-athlete by providing scholarships, tutoring, and essential academic support that allow your Bulldogs to compete at the highest level.
