The $50,000 Jeffery Hazell ’83 “Count Me In” Participation Challenge

Have You Been Counted?

UNH Board of Governors member Jeffery Hazell ’83 has created the “Count Me In” participation Challenge to reward the College that has the highest donor participation rate from now until Homecoming on Saturday, October 24.The winning College will receive $50,000.

Hazell has been a longtime benefactor of the University’s hospitality and tourism management program and UNH athletics. This Challenge, he said, provides a great way to reward the College that best motivates its alumni and friends to participate and give back to their alma mater.

UNH is doing better than ever,” said Hazell. “It makes me feel good to support students who are succeeding.

A gift – of any amount – is a vote for that College. Regardless of which one wins the Challenge, your generosity will benefit the College you choose and have an immediate impact on our students.

Every participant will be recognized on our “Count Me In” Honor Roll of Donors website and at Homecoming.
