June Alumni Challenge 2018

86% of 750 Donor goal
This campaign ended on June 30, 2018, but you can still make a gift to University of Southern Maine by clicking here!

USM is back, baby! And we’re not stopping now.

Last June, USM Husky alums and friends like you stepped up and crushed our previous year’s alumni giving rates. This June, we want to crush last year's record breaking alumni wave so we can show our community that USM alums are a powerful force! We’re ahead of pace from last year, but we can't do this without you! We need 750 more alums to give by June 30 in order to break the record. 

We can do this Huskies!

There are Four Easy Ways to Give:

  1. Donate here on the June Alumni Challenge campaign page!
  2. Donate online at usm.maine.edu/giving
  3. By mail – checks made out to: USM Foundation, PO Box 9300, Portland, ME 04104-9300
  4. Call the USM Foundation at (207) 780-4104

Are you getting our alumni emails? To be added to our list, email alumniusm@maine.edu with your info. 

Time to Rally the Husky Pack! Only 2 days to go...

Hi Huskies,

We’re in the final 48 hours of the June Alumni Challenge. Right now, we are at 71% of our goal of 750 alumni donors in the month of June. WOW! I can’t express my gratitude for your participation enough. We have already raised more than $100,000 to support USM students!

With 221 alumni donors left to go, I would like to ask for your help one more time. If you know a fellow Husky who hasn’t made a gift this year, please encourage them to give just $5. All those $5 donations add up, and they can make all the difference to a struggling student.

Also, please share the campaign on your social networks. Just use the buttons under the main video on our campaign page. Right now, we need help from all of our Husky friends.

We’re down to the wire, but this goal is within our reach. It will send such a strong message if we can say that our alumni are behind us in bigger numbers than ever.

Thank you again for all you do.

Only 10 days left and 400+ alums to go!

Time is ticking away, but we know we can make our June Alumni Challenge goal of having 750 alumni donors in the month of Junel! Our beloved mascot, Champ the Husky, has been spearheading the Challenge, and yesterday I let him know that we're all behind him.  

We've been making phone calls, along with volunteers from our staff and boards, alums have been sharing the campaign with their networks, our faculty and staff are putting the word out (see the "advocates" tab and join in!), and alums who have never given before are realizing that $5 is enough to show their support. 

If you've made a gift, thank you! If you haven't yet, please do so before midnight on June 30. You can help us reach this important goal.
