Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Give More in 24 Challenge?

On Tuesday, March 21, 2017, Seahawks will rally in an effort to reach the biggest challeng goal yet! If 1,000 donors support UNCW within a 24-hour period, it will unlock a $75,000 challenege gift. Your participation helps direct portions of the challenge funds, if the donor goal is met. Here's how.

The challenge starts at 8 a.m. EST on Tuesday, March 21 and ends at 8:00 a.m. EST on Wednesday, March 22.  

Who is counted toward the goal?

Gifts or pledges of any size from alumni, students, parents, employees and friends will be counted toward the 1,000-donor goal and help unlock $75K for UNCW. Plus, competitions and mini-challenges give every Seahawk a chance to help direct challenge funds if the donor goal is met. Find out more.

How can I participate?


Can I give to any area of campus?

Yes! Your gift or pledge to any active UNCW designation will count toward the donor goal. If you are a UNCW graduate, you will automatically be counted toward your team's participation, regardless of what area you choose to support. 

I'm a UNCW graduate. Will my gift count toward the Team Green vs. Team Teal Competition?

If you are an alumnus/alumna - we know all about you! Once your gift or pledge is received, your contribution will be matched to your record and your participation is automatically counted toward your team's participation based on your primary class year in the alumni database. If you earned multiple degrees from UNCW, your primary class year is usually for the first degree obtained. Click here to see which team is in the lead and encourage others to get involved!

When can I expect to see my name on the alumni donor list?

Due to the volumne of gifts received on this day, it may take up to 1 hour for your name to appear on the scrolling list of alumni donors. It is our goal to acknowledge that you've been counted for your team as quickly as possible.

Can I expect to receive credit if I am eligible for a matching gift?

Your gift acknowledgement/receipt will only reflect the amount of your personal contribution.
