Since 2016 is a Leap Year with 29 days in the month of February, the Michigan Tech Annual Fund has launched an initiative that capitalizes on this once-every-four-year occurrence.
All alumni of the past twenty-nine years (classes 1987 to 2015) are invited to participate in the first-ever Leap Year Challenge by making a gift during the month of February.
These gifts can be any amount and designated to any University department, program or area.
The Leap Year Challenge is also a great way for qualifying employees to participate in the annual Campus Campaign. If you’re an alum from 1987-2015 and currently employed at Michigan Tech, a gift made this month will benefit both annual giving initiatives.
The Leap Year Challenge goal is to obtain 841 (29 x 29) gifts during the twenty-nine day period. If the goal is achieved, an alumni donor has committed $29,000 to the Annual Fund this year.
So, whether you’ve made a gift this year or not, please consider a contribution during the month of February and take the leap for Huskies!
