Giving While Engaging Campaign Success!
June 19, 2013
The UVaClub of Washington, DC began the 2012-13 Term with an idea of bringing the needs of the University to the forefront of our programming in the DC region. In response, we created the “Giving While Engaging Campaign.” After five successful events and your participation, the UVaClub of Washington, DC raised $3,000 for AccessUVa. We surpassed our fundraising goal of $1,000 due to each of your tireless efforts, our generous sponsors, and engaged alumni. Thanks!
AccessUVa offers loan-free packages for low-income students, caps on need-based loans for all other students, and a commitment to meet 100 % of demonstrated need for every student. The program not only keeps a University of Virginia education affordable for the lowest income students, but also addresses the concerns of middle-income families who are squeezed by the rising cost of tuition. By limiting debt — or eliminating it altogether, in the case of students with the most need — AccessUVa offers assurances to prospective students that if they make the grade, they can afford to attend the University.
The UVa Club of Washington looks forward to its continued support of the AccessUVa program and to furthering the engagement our of our Washington, DC alumni.
