The university’s annual day of giving on March 12 was filled with inspirational moments as the MBU family came together to support the university in the midst of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
Beginning just one day after the university decided to cancel in-person classes and events, Day to Lead the Way 2020 has still amounted to a record-breaking success, thanks to the dedication of Mary Baldwin alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
After the sun had set on the day’s efforts, 340 donors had given a total of $311,872 for the Baldwin Fund, eclipsing the university’s goal at the outset of 300 gifts and $300,000 total.
“While there is much uncertainty in the world just now, we do know that places like Mary Baldwin will need generous support from their alumni and friends now more than ever,” said Charles E. “Chuck” Davis, vice president of University Advancement. “I am pleased and humbled by the response from so many who answered the call to make a gift on this annual day of celebration.”
