Giving Challenge to support student-athletes

Thanks to the generosity of William H. Groner ’77, Binghamton University launched an Athletics Alumni Giving Challenge from Sept. 12-30. The goal of the challenge was to increase giving participation among former Binghamton student-athletes.

Athletics alumni were encouraged to make gifts to any team or other athletics account during the challenge period. The sport with the highest percentage of athletics alumni making a gift will be awarded $5,000; second place will win $2,000; and third place will receive $1,000 — all toward the winning teams’ budgets.

Participants used #BingAthletesGive to help spread the word about the challenge on social media and promote participation. Final results will be announced Oct. 5.
