Last week marked the launch of the Baylor-TCU Young Alumni Challenge, a one-month competition between us Bears and our neighbors to the north to see which school’s young alums are most engaged.
During the month leading up to the Baylor-TCU football game, young alumni (defined here as graduates from 2003-2013) are encouraged to give a gift of any size to their alma mater. The first university to have 10% of its young alums participate wins.
We know many recent grads aren’t in a position to make a big gift, for any number of reasons — just getting started in a career, newly married, kids on the way, and yes, student loans. This isn’t about who can raise the most money; it’s about participation and showing your love for Baylor. If you can give $50, $25, $10, even $5 — the cost of one Starbucks or fast food run — then you can help.
Right now, frankly, TCU is kicking our tails in what is being called the “I-35 Battle Royale.” (Click here to see the current standings.) Let’s not let the Horned Frogs win! Get involved, show your support for Baylor, and let’s take this thing!
Sic ’em, young alums!
[Of course, gifts from alumni before the Class of 2003 are also appreciated, as well. Click here to learn more about what even a small gift can do for Baylor students today and tomorrow.]
