Elingburg Challenge Details

Gifts must be made to the Loyalty Fund.

Gifts to college annual funds, restricted designations, or Catamount Club are not eligible for the Elingburg Challenge.

The Elingburg Challenge will match gifts of $1,000 or more from donors who did not contribute last fiscal year, or the portion above the amount of last fiscal year’s contribution from donors who increase their giving to $1,000 or more.


Last year you made a $500 gift to Loyalty Fund, this year you make a $1,000 gift; $500 will be matched.

You make your first-ever gift to the Loyalty Fund for $1,000; entire gift will be matched.

Your last gift to the Loyalty Fund was in 2007 for $1,500; you make a $1,500 gift to the 2009-10 Loyalty Fund. Entire $1,500 will be matched.

Gifts must total $1,000 or more over the course of the fiscal year.

Gifts can be given in segments. Example:  Give $100 ten times this academic year. Setting up automatic billing with your bank is an easy way to do this!

Gifts can be cash or stock, and include an employer’s matching gift amount when qualifying for the Elingburg Challenge.

Gifts must be received by June 30, 2010.
