WHAT IS UR HERE?
A 36-hour fundraising event designed to bring the entire Spider community — students, alumni, faculty, staff, families, and friends — together in support of current and future Spiders.
UR Here starts at 12:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 10, and runs through 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 11. We chose 36 hours to give Spiders in every time zone a chance to participate.
WHY NAME OUR GIVING DAY UR HERE?
When you give to Richmond, no matter where you are, UR Here — standing shoulder to shoulder with our students and their professors and coaches as they pursue knowledge, skills, and lives of purpose.
