In this season of gratitude, the UMBC Maryland Charity Campaign team is excited to thank the 252 community members who have donated $72,000 to support nonprofits helping others across Maryland. This means that more than 100 new community members gave in the past two weeks alone. We are almost halfway to our goal of raising $200,000.
If you're celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends, we encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for, and we hope that you will consider finding an organization that supports a cause you are passionate about. For inspiration, you can check out these short videos from the 2023 Participating Charities.
As a small way to show our appreciation for your generosity, anyone who makes their gift by midnight on Sunday, November 26, will be entered to win a YETI Portable Soft Cooler. Congratulations to Brian Van Wyck, assistant professor in history, for winning our last drawing after making his gift.
Please make your gift online today. Thank you for all the ways you contribute to make both UMBC and our larger community stronger, healthier, and happier.
