Dare to Dream: 24-hours of giving, a lifetime of impact
The University of Southern Maine's (USM's) Dare to Dream campaign launched October 1 and ends on our Day of Giving. Every dollar you give before 11:59 PM on November 15 will be matched by our Alumni Association, Foundation Board, Board of Visitors, and the President's Leadership Team — up to $100,000! That means we could raise at least $200,000 for our students if each one of us gives what we can afford today.
