Help us end the Donor Challenge with a big win!

Grizz and Tommy face off on an announcement that says The Final Battle Break the Tie Detroit Mercy vs. Oakland Donor Challenge January 27-31.Detroit Mercy will once again face off against Oakland University for the Detroit Mercy vs. OU Donor Challenge, which is going on now through Friday, Jan. 31. This is the final donor challenge in this series, which is tied 2-2.

The winner is determined based on the number of donors during the competition time line and will be announced during the Detroit Mercy/Oakland University men’s basketball game on Friday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. The losing school’s mascot must wear the winning team’s mascot at the game.

Detroit Mercy won the first and third challenge in 2016 and 2018, and OU came out on top on the final day to win in 2017 and 2019. That’s why this year’s theme is “Break The Tie.” Detroit Mercy is running several crowdfunding campaigns and a special Day of Giving in conjunction with the challenge to help donors direct their gifts to projects or programs that are most meaningful to them.

“I’m really hoping to see our students and alumni rally and show their Titan pride this year and be victorious in this final year of the donor challenge,” said Judy Wernette, director of Annual Giving at Detroit Mercy.
