Power of 5 Challenge

The Office of Philanthropy invites all University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) faculty and staff members to join us in celebrating this special fifth anniversary and participating in one or both of our campaign challenges.

Power of 5 – Show and Tell (and Win) Challenge

  • SHOW US your workplace pride by taking a selfie or photo with our #ProudtoWorkHere 5th Anniversary sign.
  • TELL US your top 5 reasons why you are #ProudtoWorkHere.

Power of 5 — Give by the Numbers Challenge

The collective support of faculty and staff has the potential to make a big impact on the future of our University. Support from our UMB community also demonstrates an internal commitment that can send a powerful message to our external supporters. Consider this:

$5 per paycheck. 

500 employees giving $5 per pay period through payroll deduction = $65,000 in one year going to great causes at UMB.

One-time gift of $50.

1,000 employees making a one-time gift of $50 = $50,000 that could support public service projects, scholarships, or research activities.

500 renewed donors.

Help us reach our anniversary goal of 500 employee donors giving for a second straight year!
