Quasquicentennial challenge: 125 gifts in 125 hours. Starts Wednesday.

In honor of our quasquicentennial, we are issuing a challenge to the alumni and friends of the college: 125 gifts to the CALS Annual Fund in 125 hours. The 125 hour challenge begins on Wednesday, June 18 at 5:00 p.m. and runs until Monday, June 23 at 10:00 p.m. Look for posts about the challenge in social media and, if you’re an alumnus, you may get a call from the UW Foundation Telefund (they’re nice students, so pick up the phone). Every gift to the Annual Fund, no matter the size, counts!

Wait, there’s more! All year long, gifts to the Annual Fund will be matched dollar-for-dollar by an anonymous donor (up to $100,000 total). That means that gifts benefiting the college’s teaching, research and outreach will have twice the impact!
