Mary Wash Giving Day 2020
Come Together.

UMW continues to monitor the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation. In light of the increasingly widespread impact on our communities, we have decided to postpone Mary Wash Giving Day, originally scheduled for March 19. It is clear to us that this is not the moment to focus on giving, despite its importance to fulfilling our mission to students.

 

As you know, Mary Washington's strength is in its people. Right now our community needs us to come together in a spirit of sensitivity and support for our communities, for the strangers we don't know, and for the loved ones we do.

 

We hope you are well and stay safe through these unprecedented times.
