Mount Union Offers Matching Challenge

May 11, 2012

ALLIANCE, Ohio — This spring, a group of generous University of Mount Union alumni are challenging alumni, parents and friends to double their impact by donating to the Mount Union Fund.

As part of the Pride of Purple Challenge, gifts made to the Mount Union Fund through June 30 will be matched dollar for dollar in support of financial aid and scholarships, technology enhancements on campus, faculty/staff development, library resources and co-curricular activities.

“It’s always important that we have people participate and support the institution, and this encourages them to give as it doubles the impact of their gift to the students,” said Kimberly Terrill ’99 Rodstrom, director of the Mount Union fund.

Rodstrom said the Pride of Purple matching challenge is the first matching fund drive to be offered at Mount Union.

“These alumni believe passionately in supporting the University and they want to share their passion with others,” she said.
