Davis Family Challenge

Davis Family Challenge

In honor of the 80th birthday of our benefactor, Shelby Davis, his family challenged our alumni, parents, employees, and friends to donate a total of $2M per year over five years for a total of $20M for scholarships, student programs, and facility needs. Your contribution to the Annual Fund helps us earn this $2M and will have double the impact on our school and our students! Each year we have met the challenge thanks to the remarkable generosity of our friends and alumni. Now in its fifth and final year, the Davis Family Challenge Grant continues to encourage our entire community to do more, be more, and give more.

UWC-USA is a training ground for change-makers. Students enter as idealists and graduate well-equipped to succeed and make lasting, positive change. Those who’ve experienced it will tell you it transformed them. Those who support it philanthropically will tell you about the satisfaction of knowing they helped develop the kind of thoughtful, compassionate leaders the world truly needs.
