About

It’s Bulldog vs. Bulldog 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 unique donors on March 31 will be crowned our 2019 Bulldog Challenge Champions. Will your team emerge victorious? You decide!

Last year’s Bulldog Challenge was historic. We are counting on YOU to help break that record this year as we seek to continue our winning streak by raising $175,000 to support current programs and student-athletes. 

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.


GiveCampus FAQs

How are GiveCampus recurring gifts displayed in the Bulldog Challenge’s totals and leaderboard standings?
The lifetime value of a recurring gift made to the Bulldog Challenge through GiveCampus is displayed in the campaign's totals and leaderboard standings. For example, if you choose to give $10 monthly for two years, $240 will be added to the Bulldog Challenge campaign totals and your team designation on the leaderboard standings.


What is the difference between a GiveCampus recurring gift and a paper pledge agreement?
When you make a recurring gift to the Bulldog Challenge on GiveCampus, the lifetime value of that gift is added to the Bulldog Challenge campaign totals and leaderboard standings (as outlined above). 

If a donor makes a multi-year paper pledge agreement with the University, you can choose one of the following options:
A) I want the lifetime value of my pledged gift to be added to the 2019 Bulldog Challenge campaign total and leaderboard standings.
B) I only want the value of my pledged gift fulfilled during the 2019 fiscal year to be added to the Bulldog Challenge campaign total and leaderboard standings. The University’s 2019 fiscal year runs from July 1- June 30. 

Keep in mind that if you choose option A, we can not give credit for one pledge to multiple campaigns. The portion of the pledge you fulfill in years to come will not be eligible to count toward future Bulldog Challenge campaigns. 


How do GiveCampus recurring gifts affect Matches and Challenges?
The lifetime value of GiveCampus recurring gifts will count toward Bulldog Challenge Matches and Challenges. For example, if a donor chooses to give $500 yearly for three years (a total of $1,500 over three years), and there is an applicable $1 per $1 live Match at the time, $1,500 will be matched as a result of the recurring gift.
