March Madness Alumni Giving Challenge
We would like to thank everyone who participated in our March Madness Alumni Giving Challenge!
Whether it was through attending one of our virtual events, or making a gift of support to the BDS Annual Fund, we thank you for being a committed member of our community! We are grateful for your unbelievable support and dedication to Belmont Day! As we have all learned over the past year, community is incredibly important and we feel honored and thankful to have a community like we do at BDS!
We especially want to thank and acknowledge the Class of 1975 that came out on top as the leading class for participation during March Madness. Congratulations!
Lastly, we have only 10 alumni gifts to go to meet our year end goal. YOU can help us cross the finish line before the end of June by making a gift of support today. As a reminder, this is all about participation, gifts of all sizes make a difference! Whether it be $5, $10, $20 or more - we ask you to join us in making a gift if you have not already done so this year.
