The Extra Effort Challenge

“We focus on winning, but it’s also about becoming better people. You sense that throughout Miami Athletics and through the support you receive.”

The Extra Effort Challenge

The Extra Effort Challenge is uniting loyal donors and showing how a small individual increase in your annual support can have a significant collective impact. We invite you to accept the challenge today by increasing your support to the next membership level or by adding an extra 10 percent to your current annual gift.

Miami’s inspiring student-athletes
are turning to you.

The collective support of Red & White Club members is advancing the $80 million Graduating Champions Campaign, and the Red & White Club seeks to raise $1 million from members just like you in fiscal year 2018.


The Extra Effort Impact

Swoop made a $250 gift to the Red & White Club on May 15, 2018, and now he’s accepting the Extra Effort Challenge. Let’s take a look at his options and the impact:

  • Swoop increases his previous year’s giving by 10 percent, raising his total to $275. The extra $25 covers two additional student-athlete lunches.
  • Swoop decides to take flight for the Captain level and increases his gift to $500. The additional $250 buys three new student-athlete textbooks.

Just imagine the impact if Swoop gets his whole flock to accept the challenge!
