Gund Family Challenge

The Gund Institute for Environment was founded with a $6-million donation from the Gund Family. Their gift included an additional $4-million pledge – the Gund Family Challenge – to inspire greater philanthropic support of the Gund Institute.

If UVM can raise $8 million for the Gund Institute for Environment by 2022, it will unlock this additional $4-million gift from the Gund Family. Their pledge to match 50 percent of our next $8 million in donations means your gift to the Institute can have even greater impact on the issues you care about most.
