The University of Tennessee at Martin will host its fifth-annual Captain’s Challenge fundraising event April 3 with the goal to raise $300,000 in 24 hours. This is the second year for the event to cover one full day, and the 2018 event raised well above the goal amount.
Contributors can direct their gifts toward any campus office or department, athletic unit, scholarship fund, special program or other activity. Gifts will be matched up to $300 as long as match funds are available. Contributors are particularly asked to consider the Chancellor’s Academic Excellence Fund, which is a general scholarship fund used to attract and retain the best and brightest students who might otherwise accept awards at other institutions.
Those interested in helping to promote the event on social media and through other channels are encouraged to register as “Captain’s Challenge Pilots” at https://challenge.utm.edu/pilots.
