Done. Not Finished.
Thanks to the support of more than 800 donors who gave more than $160,000, Widener’s Day of Giving was a huge success. We couldn’t have done it with you!
But that’s not the end. Every year, Widener University is committed to making our education and preparation of our students better. And you can join us, by making a gift to any of the funds, programs, or scholarships at Widener that matter most to you.
Because while #Roar4Widener may have hit its goals, our commitment to putting our students on the pathway to success never stops. And we know yours doesn’t either.
We met the challenge and hit our goals! Paul Beideman '79 '14H, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, made a significant challenge: If we could reach 800 donors before noon on April 13, he would donate $10,000 to Widener. And we did it! With your help, we cracked that goal and we are still going!
We have reached the Leatherberry challenge! Trustee Tonie Leatherberry '23 made a significant challenge: If we could reach 400 donors before 8 AM on April 13, she would donate $10,000 to Widener. We hit that goal before 5 PM!
We met the Hargadon challenge! Alumnus and trustee James "Jamie" Hargadon '75 pledged $5,000 to the basketball team to match gifts - contratulations to the team for a great season and a great #Roar4Widener!
The Tan Student Challenge has been met! Trustee Richard Tan promised to match every $20+ student gift with his own $100 gift for that same program, up to 100 gifts. And we have gotten there! Thank you to all of the students who supported #Roar4Widener and showed their leadership in our community!
We have met the anonymous SURCA challenge! An anonymous donor pledged $2,000 to SURCA if we could reach $2,000 in donations - which we did! Thank you to everyone who's made student reseach opportunities available this summer!
We have met the anonymous LGBTQ+ and SAGA challenge! An anonymous donor pledged $1,000 to support programming for our LGBTQ+ community and allies - which we did! Thank you to all of our donors!
We have met the Pulos Challenge for Football! Cathy Pulos will donate $10,000 to the football team thanks to donors like you!
We have met the Alumni Council challenge! The Widener Alumni Council made a challenge, to give $1 for every donor - and we got there!
