DURHAM, N.H. -- The Athletic Alumni Challenge is in the home stretch, with the competition officially ending on June 30, 2013, which is the end of the fiscal year. Your team needs your help to achieve the highest percent participation rate for gifts within The Wildcat Fund.
While it is still anyone’s race to win, as of June 10, the ski program leads with 40.72 percent of its alumni making gifts, followed by Swimming and Diving (20.66 percent), and Football (19.27). Men’s Basketball, Men’s Hockey, Lacrosse, Cross Country/Track & Field and Field Hockey are all within striking distance. To see how your team is doing in the competition, please see the chart.
The top three alumni groups with the highest percentage of alumni giving will receive bonuses of $2,500, $1,500, and $1,000 respectively, that will go directly to their Friends Groups.
If you are an athletics alum, all you have to do to participate is make a gift of any size to any designation within The Wildcat Fund (sport specific friends group, Athletic Director’s Priorities, or Athletic Scholarships). Gifts can be made online at www.unh.edu/supporathletics or sent via check or credit card to: Athletics Development, Field House, 145 Main St., Durham, NH 03824.
Help increase our alumni participation and enable your team to earn these bonus rewards. Time is running out, remember, June 30 is the final day to get in on the competition.
