Upward Bound - March Madness 2019

This campaign ended on March 20, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Worcester State University by clicking here!

Please support Worcester State's Upward Bound Scholarship Fund. 

The Upward Bound Program at Worcester State University is designed to encourage eligible Worcester Public High School students to persist in high school through graduation and to pursue post-secondary education after the successful completion of high school. We primarily recruit 9th and 10th grade students from the Worcester Public High Schools who demonstrate the motivation and desire to succeed, are interested in going to college, and are first-generation, low income, and/or ALANA students.  Please make a gift today to support this fantastic program.


March Madness - The 2019 Day of Giving Competition Overview

Help your favorite Worcester State team, department, or club raise money and win the March Madness Giving Competition! Registered teams will go head to head to see who can get the most donors per team member in (4) 12-hour rounds. Teams with the most donors will advance to the next round. Help your team advance to the next round and win the grand prize.

Generous donors have pledged matching funds to the winning teams:  

1st Place: $1,000
2nd Place: $500
3rd Place: $250


Competition Rules: 

  1. Donations must be $5.00 or more.
  2. To allow smaller teams to compete evenly with larger ones, results will be calculated based on the size of the team. EXAMPLE: 10 person team with 20 donors = 2 donors/member. 2 person team with 20 donors = 10 donors/member. Therefore the 2 person team is the winner!
  3. Donations must be made on this web page to qualify.
  4. Multiple gifts made to one team, using the same credit card, will be counted as one donor.
  5. Gifts must be made by 11:59 PM on 3/20/2019.
