Captain’s Challenge Pilots

What is a Captain’s Challenge Pilot?

Pilots are alumni, students, and other members of the community who promise to advocate on behalf of UT Martin during Captain’s Challenge. We want YOU to help recruit new donors to UTM! Each pilot will receive a personalized giving link to share with family and friends. The top three pilots with the most unique donors through their giving link will receive an exclusive Homecoming package including two game tickets, access to the VIP luncheon, and two T-shirts. 

How can you help? By completing Captain’s Checklist!

  • Post original messages on social media, liking and commenting on posts from official UT Martin social media pages, and liking and commenting on posts from friends.
  • Use profile pictures and other graphics provided in the Pilot toolkit.
  •  Recruit as many donors as you can to make a gift via your assigned giving link to help us surpass our goal of 1,600 gifts.
  • Make a gift (via your link!) during Captain’s Challenge!
