April 6-7: Two days of giving, events, and prizes

UMassD Corsair Challenge

Join the UMassD community in the Corsair Challenge on April 6 and 7, as we show the world what we can do when we join together in the name of philanthropy and Corsair pride. The two-day giving event runs until 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7 and features prizes, virtual events, and giving challenges. 

Give online to win prizes and help your favorite area of UMassD earn bonus funds

Since 2018, the Corsair Challenge has brought together worthy UMass Dartmouth causes with supportive donors and champions. Thanks to a group of generous donors, every gift makes an even bigger impact with special one-time challenges that will give everyone the chance to compete for additional matching funds and prizes. Make your donation on our secure site.

In the Corsair Challenge, you choose which UMassD college, program, organization, or athletic team will receive your donation. Fun challenges help areas earn bonus funds, and make you eligible to win prizes. Challenges include:

  • When the number of alumni donors reaches 250, the Alumni Association will release a total of $10,000 in support of Center for Women, Gender & Sexuality, Frederick Douglass Unity House, the Student Text Book Fund, and the Women in Defense Scholarship.
  • Make a gift anytime during the 32-hour period could win a half-hour virtual coffee with Chancellor Fuller.
  • Make a gift between 10 a.m. and noon on April 6th and you may win the opportunity to have a donut named for you at the McLean Campus Center Dunkin' for a week in the fall of 2021.
