The University said in a press release that the campaign raised a record-high $6.1 million from more than 1,300 different donors last year -- benchmarks they will surely seek to surpass as the Bama Blitz returns for its sixth year.

Part of the draw of the Bama Blitz is that it is broken out some donors can fund specific projects, so someone passionate about adapted athletics or the Al's Pals mentorship program, they can give specifically to those programs.


The well-designed drive also features bonuses unlocked when projects surpass set benchmarks - Bryant Bank will distribute $50,000 among all projects that reach their fundraising goals, and many leaders and organizations have agreed to match donations for projects they want to see advanced.
