#GivingDayUMD: Helping Terps Move Fearlessly Forward
For 24 hours on March 9, Terps across campus and around the globe will come together on Giving Day to support student scholarships, academic research, clubs and organizations, and so much more. We hope you'll lend your support to the Alumni Association's Student Engagement Fund. This year, our board of governors will match all gifts to the Alumni Association up to $14,250.
No matter what areas of campus you choose to support, and no matter the amount, you'll make a huge impact on the lives of Terps. For the full list of ways to give and to track this year's progress, check the main Giving Day webpage.
