6th Annual “Give More in 24” Challenge Set for April 9

Wednesday, April 03, 2019

Celebrated each spring, the UNCW “Give More in 24” Challenge invites alumni, students, parents, employees and friends to join forces and be a part of UNC Wilmington’s annual one-day giving event. Kicking off at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, April 9, Seahawks and friends are encouraged to give any amount to any area of the university during a 24-hour period.
Since the inauguration of the annual initiative in 2014, more than $1,117,500 has been raised during “Give More in 24.” This year, in an effort to involve one donor per each minute of the campaign, the goal is to have 1,440 donors participate by 8 a.m. on Wednesday, April 10. If the goal is reached, each gift will be increased by $24 in challenge funds.
“The ‘Give More in 24’ Challenge is an opportunity to celebrate what it means to be a Seahawk and shine a spotlight on what’s possible when the UNCW family comes together to make a difference,” said Lauren King ’04, director of annual giving.
Some of UNCW’s most generous donors are offering matching gift opportunities if various challenge goals are met. To learn more, visit
