Million Dollar March FAQs
Your giving is doubled in March
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does Million Dollar March Match work?
A: Every dollar donated to the Annual Fund during the month of March will be matched 1:1 up to $500,000 thanks to the generosity of our challenge donors: Board of Trustees Chair Maureen Lynch & Richard Lapedes, Megan Trolander & Jim Spangler ’74, and an anonymous member of the Class of 1972. Double the amount and the impact of your giving by making a gift today!
Q: I have an existing pledge, does this count?
A: No, Million Dollar March is a campaign designed to help us meet our annual cash-flow needs by raising new funds. Only new gifts and pledges are counted during Million Dollar March.
Q: I would like to make a new pledge, will this count toward the match?
A: Yes! If you make a new pledge, the amount you promise to donate by June 30, 2021, (the end of the College’s fiscal year) will be matched 1:1 and count toward the Match.
Please note that for new multi-year pledges, only the amount you promise to pay by June 30, 2021, will count toward the Match (payments on the pledge in future years will not be matched).
Q: I have an existing recurring donation, does my payment in March count?
A: Existing recurring donations (except those initiated during the Sustainer Challenge, see details below*) are not eligible for match during Million Dollar March. However, if you would like to make an additional donation to increase the impact of your giving, that amount will be matched.
*For those who joined the “Sustainer Challenge” in October and November 2020, your March donation will be matched.
Q: I’ve heard that there is a Chapter Challenge during Million Dollar March, what is that?
A: The Chapter Challenge is a fun way for Antiochians to join together and increase their engagement and impact during the month of March! Learn more about the Chapter Challenge here.
