#MaryWashDay Is Back April 4th, 2023

Mary Wash Giving Day (#MaryWashDay) is a 24-hour online day of giving to the University of Mary Washington. Back for its fourth year, it will take place Tuesday, April 4th, 2023.  Mark your calendar and bookmark to be part of the excitement!

We have set an ambitious goal for our third annual #MaryWashDay: $6,500 in one day to honor UMW’s Economics department. Together, we can make it the single largest day of fundraising in the University’s history, all to benefit Mary Washington students and programs.
