Whether you give $5 or $100, your gift absolutely matters. Participation is just as important as the number of dollars raised. Nearly 60% of all gifts UMW received last year were $50 or under!
The best part of the Senior Class Gift is that you can donate anywhere! We strongly encourage you to support areas at UMW that matter most to you. Popular gift designations for students include: any student club, any athletic team, any department, any UMW college, the Fund for Mary Washington, the General Scholarship Fund, the James Farmer Multicultural Center, Student Activities and Engagement, the Study Abroad Assistance Fund, and the Underground Improvement to create a special place for upperclassmen.
Tuition and state funds cover ONLY 75% of the total cost to keep UMW open every year. Contributions from students, alumni, parents, and friends are crucial for bridging the gap. Support UMW on our first-ever #MaryWashDay!
