My Decade is Better than Yours! 

JOIN YOUR FELLOW ALUMS FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF THE RIO DECADE CHALLENGE, ONLY THIS YEAR WE ARE ADDING A NEW TWIST!

Over the past four years, we have invited each of you, our alumni, to play along in our “Battle of the Decades” challenge. And since
2016, we have seen a tremendous outpouring of support for the University. In just four short years, our graduates from all decades
have contributed a total of $411,611.65 to the Rio Fund – a fund that helps cover a wide-range of institutional needs.
We hope this year will be no different, as we are asking for your participation and generous support for your Alma Mater in
Round V of “Battle of the Decades”.

PAST WINNERS

The 1970’s dominated in 2019. Not only did they
accumulate the most ‘points’ through last year’s contest,
but they also contributed the most gifts to the Rio Fund.

HOW TO PLAY

Support your Alma Mater and give in support of your graduation decade. Example, $19.90 would be a gift for a 1990’s alumni.

WHEN TO PLAY

All gifts to the Rio Fund from September 1, 2020 to November 30, 2020, will directly support Rio Grande’s mission to provide
learners the opportunity to attain a high-quality, high-value education.

WHAT’S AT STAKE

These ‘awards’ will earn each decade a bragging right and will be featured in our newsletter, on our website, and on our social
media platforms. Each donor will also be recognized in our yearly donor report.
1. Society of 1876 Cup – The decade with the greatest amount of donors
2. Spirit of Rio Cup – The decade with the most dollars contributed
3. Pride of Rio Cup – The decade with the greatest amount of new donors

WHY

We take pride in our Battle of the Decades, and we would love your support for the Rio Fund through this fun way to give back and
honor yesterday with a gift today.
