BOLD Challenges

To encourage the Alumni Fund to meet participation goals by June 30, generous benefactors of Yale have stepped up and issued the following special challenges:

Bulldog Blitz
March 31 - April 10

The Bulldog Blitz is an annual challenge to secure gifts for the Yale Alumni Fund. The Challenge runs from Friday, March 31 to Monday, April 10 at 11:59 p.m. This year’s donor goal is an ambitious one: 2,000 donors! However, we are confident that Yale Alumni will rise to the challenge. A loyal, anonymous challenger will contribute $100,000 to the Alumni Fund if 2,000 gifts and pledge payments are secured during Bulldog Blitz! 

YOU can make an immediate difference by participating today: Every donor and every gift—regardless of size—counts for the challenge. Members of all Yale College Classes are invited to participate in the challenge by making their gift or pledge payment today. Under the terms of the challenge, gifts made until April 10, 2017 at 11:59 pm, will be counted toward the 2,000 donor goal. These include unrestricted gifts directed to the Alumni Fund’s special areas of support: financial aid, facilities, faculty support/curriculum development, library resources, and undergraduate life. All gifts and pledge payments made during Bulldog Blitz also count toward Reunion Class Challenges and for Reunion Gift credit.
