Judy and Mark Winters of Virginia Beach are the parents of Madison ’18 and members of the Parent Leadership Circle. UMW Parent & Family eNews sat down with Judy to get her perspective on being a college parent.
Bob and Martha Barry, parents of Emily Barry ’14, are issuing a challenge to all Mary Washington parents on Giving Day: Make a gift to the Fund for Mary Washington, and the Barrys will match it dollar for dollar (up to $9,000 total).
When you #give2UMW on #GivingTuesday, the international day of philanthropy, you are investing in our students, our faculty, and our future.
In the spirit of paying it forward, the Office of Annual Giving will deliver “Hugs & Kisses from Home” to your UMW student after you make your gift.
Here’s how to participate:
- On #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017, make a gift to the Fund for Mary Washington by clicking on “Giving Tuesday: Parents and Families” at fund.umw.edu.
- Include your student’s name and an encouraging end-of-semester note in the giving form’s comments field.
- The Office of Annual Giving will deliver your note, with a goodie bag of Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses, to your student’s campus mailbox on December 4, just in time for a pre-exam-week pick-me-up.
Help spread the word on social media by sharing why you #give2UMW on #GivingTuesday! To better understand the impact of your gift, please view Annual Giving’s “Investment in Hope” series, shared each Tuesday in November on the University of Mary Washington Parents & Families Facebook page.
Be sure to bookmark our special Giving Tuesday site at fund.umw.edu, and mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 28!
