It is UNH’s annual online fundraiser in which donors support their favorite area(s) of the university for the chance to have their gift matched or amplified. Through the challenge, gifts are matched, up to $200 per donor until the $200,000 in matching funds run out. If you miss out on the matching funds, there are other surprise bonus challenges throughout to help your gift go even further. This is all made possible thanks to a generous group of underwriters.
The (603) Challenge
The #UNH603 Challenge is your chance to give back! It’s a university-wide fundraising drive during which you can give directly to the areas of UNH that have supported you, or that you just really enjoy and value.
If you can, now is the time to donate to the Carsey School of Public Policy – or to any of your favorite areas of UNH. Thank you!
Carsey Area Challenge: If the Carsey School can reach 70 online donors by the end of the Challenge on April 6, 11:59 p.m. EST, our generous underwriters will kick in an extra $35,000 to support student scholarships. To help us achieve this goal, donate early in the Challenge and encourage others to contribute to Carsey student scholarships so we can hit that 70-donor mark! Thanks to our underwriters David Dixon '86 and Jamie Tedford for making this Area Challenge possible.
Matching Funds (Up to $300 per Donation): What makes this fundraising drive even more special is that a group of generous underwriters pledge matching support (for 2023, it’s up to $300 per donor until the $300,000 in matching funds run out), allowing your gift to go even further! The matching funds are available at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, April 2.
Wednesday, April 5 – NH Numbers Bonus Challenge: The #UNH603 Challenge is announcing The NH Numbers Bonus Challenge, today only. Here is how it works: The first 603 donors who make an online gift today with a total amount containing the numerals 6, 0, 3—in any order—and haven’t already given during this year’s challenge will have a $50 bonus added to their gift.
Thursday, April 6 (starting at 12:00:01 a.m. ET) – Grand Finale Bonus Challenge: Thursday, April 6, is the final day of The (603) Challenge and there is one last chance to increase the impact of your gift. The Grand Finale Bonus Challenge will give an equal portion of $75,000 to all donors who make an online gift on April 6 who haven’t already during this year’s 603 challenge. Every new donor making a gift on April 6, in any amount, will receive a split portion of $75,000.
