The colleges of agriculture at the U of A and Louisiana State University are mirroring the “Battle for the Golden Boot” football game between the Razorbacks and Tigers with a philanthropic challenge.
Arkansas’ Dale Bumpers of College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences and LSU’s College of Agriculture have created the “Golden Boot Giving Challenge”–a crowdfunding challenge for the week of the ARK vs LSU game (Nov. 5-12).
The challenge is based on the number of donors, alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends who contribute to their respective college with all contributions going to Bumpers College Student Assistance Fund.
The donation period is Saturday (Nov. 5) through Saturday (Nov. 12). The winning college is determined by which one receives the most number of gifts (not by dollar amount). The contest counts unique donors, so each contributor is counted just once! Any gift amount will count!
