NEW FOR 2017-18The goal of the Alumni Giving Challenge is to increase student-athlete alumni participation in Denver Athletics' annual fund. On top of obtaining much needed resources and reengaging our alumni in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of Denver Athletics, one of our teams will take home an additional $10,000 through the generosity of an anonymous donor!
How It WorksThis Challenge will measure annual alumni participation from July 1, 2017, through May 30, 2018. We're going to rank each team by the percentage of former student-athletes who have given $25 or more to their respective program and through increase in participation from the previous year. If you have already made a gift to your program this year, thank you very much! You are already counted, and now we just need you to get your teammates involved.
Who is InvolvedThis Challenge is directed to all former student-athletes of Denver's varsity sport programs. Your gift counts the same whether you were a walk-on or a four-year starter, and whether you give $25,000 or $25. (Of course, we hope you'll give as generously as you can!)
What's at StakeAdditional support of $10,000 for your program and the opportunity to show every other team and the University community which alumni have the most pride and investment in the future of Denver Athletics.
The Basic Details
Already Made a Gift This Year*?Thank you. You are one of the many former student-athletes who have already given back to their teams and your support is reflected in the leader board below.
*Giving for this academic year counts since July 1, 2017.
Haven't Made Your Gift Yet?This challenge is for you! And you can move the needle for your program by making a gift today. We hope you'll give as generously as you can, but in this challenge, a $25 gift will carry as much weight as a $25,000 gift.
Who's Winning?Teams are awarded points based upon percentage of participation and participation increase from the previous year. The current standings are representative of every former athlete who has supported his or her former team's Annual Fund beginning July 1, 2017. These standings are updated monthly.
