The Hawk Challenge

New Alumni Donors 10/12/12What is the Hawk Challenge?

To inspire and demonstrate the importance of alumni participation, a group of fellow alumni, members of the Hawks Society, have collectively committed to a $50,000 challenge grant. The goal is to have 500 more alumni donors make a gift to the Annual Fund by October 15, 2012. Doing the math - that's $100 per donor!

  • Why 500 New Alumni Donors?
    The more alumni who participate by making a gift, the better positioned the University is to provide increased educational value to today's students. Learn more about alumni participation.
  • Why by October 15?
    Gifts to the Annual Fund are immediate used funds that allow the University the flexibility to meet ever-changing needs more effectively. With the new academic year now underway, now is the time to make your gift.
  • What is the Hawks Society
    The Hawks Society is a recognition society for alumni donors who have made gifts to the University in each of the past five or more consecutive years. We are extremely proud that one in four of all RWU alumni donors is a member of the Hawks Society!
