A UArts challenge for you!

February 26, 2024

School Challenge
The top three schools that secure the highest number of individual gifts will not only win a coveted UArtist Day of Giving trophy; they will also unlock additional funds for students in their programs, thanks to a challenge gift provided by UArts Trustee Nat Hamilton BFA ’07 (Photography).

  • 1st place school  = $7,500 unlocked
  • 2nd place school = $5,000 unlocked
  • 3rd place school = $2,500 unlocked

Alumni Challenge
Thanks to UArts Trustee Harriet Weiss, alumni can unlock an additional $50,000 if a total of 200 or more alumni make a Day of Giving gift! The school that receives the most individual gifts from alumni will win bragging rights and a UArtist Day of Giving trophy. 

Staff Challenge
If staff help to raise a total of $10,000, they will unlock a challenge gift for an additional $50,000 pledged by UArts Trustee Seth Lehr. The department that helps raise the most money will win a UArtist Day of Giving trophy and a special reward.
