Frequently Asked Questions


What is "Give Day?"

UMS-Wright Give Day is an exciting 24 hour period on November 9 (12:00 AM CST - 11:59 PM CST) that raises money for The Wright Fund, our annual giving campaign. Our goal for Give Day is to secure 500 donations in just one day! You as members of the UMS-Wright Family are first in line as we look at the relationships that have built our history and the success of our school. It is your dedication and “All In Spirit" that has allowed UMS-Wright to flourish through your love of our students, our faculty, and our mission.  Throughout Give Day, we ask for your support by making a donation in honor or memory of your or your family's favorite faculty member, past or present.   Your gift will directly benefit the students and faculty of UMS-Wright and will continue to enhance these dynamic relationships that we share. No matter the size, make the WRIGHT choice and donate today! #ALLinTHEWRIGHTWAY
