Annual Fund Challenge Details


This annual fund challenge is an all-encompassing way to invite Sage’s alumni and friends to make an impact through annual fund giving and CELEBRATE the 100th anniversary of Sage by lighting up the Centennial Campaign logo!

The goal of the Light Up the Logo challenge is to raise $3,000,000 through The Sage Fund for Excellence, Sage’s annual fund, helping us to reach our Centennial Campaign goal of $50 million.

This annual fund challenge runs from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2016 and all gifts made to the annual fund during this time count toward the challenge. Light Up the Logo progress will be updated regularly, so check back often to see the difference our alumni and friends have made in helping Sage Light Up the Logo.
