Woody Hunt Gift Challenge

In 2012, 1966 alumnus Woody Hunt pledged $1 million in support to the BHP if the program raised $2 million by 2017 from alumni and friends. We are proud to announce we have reached this monumental feat, having raised $2 million in gifts and pledges for BHP in record time! These permanent funds will go towards student, faculty and programmatic support, in addition to a portion being allocated toward scholarships. Numerous BHP classes rallied together to either create their individual endowment or create a class endowment. This now brings the support for BHP to $3 million!

Coming Together to Rise to the Challenge 

The following classes banded together to establish new endowments for the Woody Hunt BHP Gift Challenge. These classes of alumni asked their classmates to make gifts and pledges towards the $25,000 goal to fully establish a new endowment. Individuals from these classes have also created their own endowments. Totals inclusive of these individual endowments are reflected below in the class fundraising total. Classes who have started endowments include:
