    Theres a page about the locker room renovation on the giving day page. There is also a page about the Green Machine needing donations as well.

    I'm guessing meters will show up on the day of like they did last year.

    Seems like someone has promised the green machine 5k if they get to 50 gifts tomorrow. Considering a gift can be as low as $5, I think this board alone can get them there. Just thought I’d spread the word.

    Green Machine is at 32 gifts. Let's get them to 50!

    Also saw this: Thanks to Head Men's Basketball Coach Dave Paulsen and his wife Kathy, all gifts made to the renovation project will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5,000.

    I wonder if Larranaga will even donate anything although nobody would have even heard of him in Florida if not for Westhead recruit George Evans and GMU.

    If anyone wants to give to Mason but is still salty at the University for one of 1,000 valid reasons, you can send me some paypal money at chrisjollay@gmail.com and I will donate it. That way you can support the University but still keep up your gruff, anti-Mason or Paulsen personality on the boards because no one can trace you to your support.

    (22.5% surcharge)

    Just sent you 6 dollars, Jollay - that should cover the 5$ min and your surcharge.

    The Basketball Locker Room project is at around $21,800 from 70 donors. I believe that includes the $5000 from Dave and Kathy Paulsen. They are still looking for a goal of 75 donors, so 5 of you could make that happen by donating $5 each.

    Green Machine is up to almost $19,000 from 134 donors, surpassing all 3 goals for the day. Would be great to see them get up to a round $20K before we're done.

    The school-wide total is over $240K from 1200+ donors.

    Just as a trivial note, when I worked with Princeton Athletics, their Tiger Athletics Give Day totaled 2.4 million off of roughly 8,000 donors. Track & Field alone raised 270k.

    One day... we will get there.

    I think their alumni might have some serious money. Just a hunch though.
