As a demonstration of support for William & Mary’s commitment to gender equity in athletics, an anonymous alumna has stepped forward with a $1.5 million challenge gift for women’s athletics scholarships.
William & Mary is a place that we know will be good stewards of our support and that our gift to the Mason School of Business will continue to pay it forward for generations. This campaign is a great opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of students and professors. Join us and be part of this.
