UMW Parent and Family eNews recently sat down with Vera Smith-Winfree, Parent Leadership Circle member and mother of Ellis Winfree ’23, to talk about the transition to Mary Washington from his home in Connecticut.
#ComeTogether with fellow Mary Wash alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, and friends for the University’s fourth annual Giving Day on Thursday, March 19, 2020.
On #MaryWashDay, donors can make gifts to different areas of need across the University from midnight to 11:59 p.m. at givingday.umw.edu. Throughout the day, challenges and matches funded by generous donors will be “unlocked” to multiply the impact of each gift. The University has set a goal of 1,000 new donors and a total of 3,000 gifts.
