UVa-Wise Rise Up, Be Counted Challenge

Chancellor Henry with Madison SavareseRise Up, Be Counted Challenge

The UVa-Wise Alumni Association has extended a challenge to alumni who haven’t made a gift to UVa-Wise this year to do so by June 30 when the fiscal year closes. “Alumni support is vital to our alma mater and if you haven’t had an opportunity to make a gift yet, please rise up to meet this challenge by making a gift today,” said incoming alumni president Brian Blanton ’92. Blanton also extended a challenge with a monetary incentive to Alumni Board members at their annual retreat held the last weekend in May. He pledged to make a$10 gift (up to $1,000) for every alumni gift made between now and June 30. So that is a $100 gift for every ten gifts!

Here's how it works:

  • The 2014 UVa-Wise Rise Up, Be Counted Challenge will run thru June 30, 2014 and is a participation based giving challenge for all UVa-Wise alumni.  
  • Gifts may be of any amount and may be directed to an academic department, athletic program, the Alumni Association or any area where you have you have an interest.
  • Spread the word! Make your gift today and rally your fellow alumni to do the same. Alumni gifts equip your alma mater to better serve today’s students.

Every gift – no matter the amount – makes a huge difference at UVa-Wise!

Make a gift online today at www.giving.virginia.edu/wise or mail your gift to UVa-Wise Foundation, 1 College Avenue, Wise. VA 24293. Make sure your gift is postmarked by June 30, 2014.
