In an effort to raise the bar for this year’s campaign, several incentives are being offered for the colleges and units that receive the greatest number of unique gifts during specific times. The “Lunch Break,” from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. today, April 18, a grant of $500 will be awarded to the college or unit that receives the most unique gifts during this time frame. The “Lunch Break” is generously sponsored by Yvonne Brown and Steve Brown (’68). The “Prime Time Passion” incentive, taking place between 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. and also sponsored by Yvonne Brown and Steve Brown, will award a grant of $500 to the college or unit that receives the most unique gifts during that time frame.

If you’re a night owl and choose to “Wait ’til the Midnight Hour,” a grant of $1,000 will be awarded to the college or unit that receives the most unique gifts on April 19 from midnight to 1 a.m. Thanks to Jane Morgan (’82) and George Morgan for sponsoring this time frame!
