You don’t have to wait until November to give thanks for UMass Lowell.

On April 25-26, UML will hold its first-ever Days of Giving, a two-day donor challenge open to all alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends of the university. The goals: set a UML record by rallying 480 donors in the space of 48 hours and unlock $48,000 in challenge funds from an anonymous donor.

“This is a fun and easy way to give back to UML, while doubling the impact of your gift,” explains Theresa Lee, UML’s executive director of development. “Whether you are a first-time donor or a longtime supporter, your gift of any size will help us meet our goal and receive $48,000 in matching funds.” 

Contributions will enhance the educational experience of all students by supporting financial aid and co-curricular and academic programs.

On-campus events are scheduled for both days, including an April 25 kickoff at University Crossing, featuring carnival fare and games (noon to 2 p.m.), followed on April 26 by an ice cream social on the South Campus Quad (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and games and refreshments on the Cumnock Hall lawn (noon to 2 p.m.).
