All gifts toward the Alfond Challenge and UMaine Football also help support the Black Bear Fund. Your employer may have a matching gift program that will increase the impact of your gift to UMaine Football and the Alfond Challenge – please consult your Human Resources Office. We also encourage you to consider a gift of appreciated securities; gifts of stocks, bonds, treasuries, and mutual funds often have valuable tax benefits to donors.
A gift to UMaine football is also a meaningful way to honor a friend or family member, former teammate, coach, or other individual.
