2019 Tobacco Road Tzedakah Cup

Tzedakah Cup UNC 2019
The numbers are in! We've taken the Cup for the second year in a row! The Cup combined with our two wins on the court, makes this a clean sweep. We are so grateful to the 114 generous young alumni who donated to UNC Hillel. Thank you for supporting free Shabbat meals, late night study breaks, and upcoming Passover Seders--all while crushing Dook!

The rules:

  1. Only donations from alumni from the past 15 years (graduation years 2004 - 2018) can be counted toward the challenge.
  2. Donations must be made during the challenge - pledges don't count toward the totals.
  3. The competition will run from 12:00 a.m. on Monday February 18 to 11:59 p.m. on Monday March 11, with the winner announced the following week.
  4. Donations must be a minimum of $18 per individual donor (for married alumni couples to be counted as two donations, gift must total $36 or more).
  5. The winning campus is determined by the number of young alumni who donated (not the dollar amount).
