UC Pioneer Athletic Giving Challenge

This campaign ended on September 27, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Utica University by clicking here!

Join us for our first annual UC Pioneer Athletics Giving Challenge.  7days - 700 donors - 700 Athletes! Your participation in our 700 donors in 7 days challenge will improve the Pioneers student-athlete experience. 

Why 700? One donor for every student participating in UC athletics.

Show your PIONEER Pride September 21-27! Join alumni, parents, and friends of Utica College athletics by making a gift today. Your gift of any amount will help us achieve our goal! Contributions may be designated to the individual sport of your choice or go to Athletics area of greatest need.

The Challenges are many.  Teams are competing to win extra dollars for their programs.  They can win extra funds for having the highest percentage of their donor goals, the highest percentage of alumni participation, and the highest percentage toward their overall dollar goals.

The time is now. Let's make tomorrow an even greater day to be a Pioneer. 

Check the "Donors" tab on this page to see your team's progress on the Leaderboard!
