WSU Food Pantry - March Madness 2019

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

The food Pantry at WSU is opening as an effort to help students that battle with food insecurities. Students will have access to non-perishable food items that they are able to take and bring home, simply by swiping their OneCard. Donations to the WSU Food Pantry will help with stocking the shelves as well as keeping the pantry up and running. Roughly 1 in 3 students at WSU experience food insecurity, meaning they lack access to affordable and adequate quantities of nutritious food. By installing and on-campus food pantry, we are hoping to provide an immediate solution to those in need.

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.
