#GivingToHoosDay Success!

Thank you! All of you who joined us in last month's GivingToHoosDay by donating and sharing our social media posts came together with our matching donor to generate a wonderful infusion of funding for our programs. We were thrilled to receive:

4 gifts at the $500+ level | 3 gifts at the $200+ level | 22 gifts at the $100+ level | 45 gifts at the <$100 level

Together, we raised $18,626 through our matching challenge! This strong showing of the UVA community's commitment to our work would make us proud any day. But we are especially honored that the very people who have the clearest view into our work are investing in it. In addition to the 26 donations we received demonstrating the broad support for the Women's Center among UVA alums (class years 2010 and prior) and their spouses, we received GivingToHoosDay gifts from:

and MANY gifts from current students who participated on their own, through class giving, or through group gifts coordinated by student organizations such as the Inter-Sorority Council!

We are truly grateful for this grassroots support from those who best know the impact of what we do. This broad base of support keeps us strong and growing. And it is rewarding indeed to see students and young alumni giving back to ensure that the services and opportunities they've found here are extended to more students in the future.

Our thanks also go to our GivingToHoosDay colleagues across Grounds for their work to make the day such a success for the whole University community.

And we ask that you all join us in expressing the deep appreciation of the whole Women's Center family to Laura Burrows (CLAS 1978), our GivingToHoosDay matching donor. Her generous challenge encouraged each donor to be part of this day of camaraderie and pride in what we can accomplish together.
