Still need convincing?
110 years of development
Over the past 110 years, the Washington and Lee University Mock Convention has developed into an organization of interdisciplinary study and research held high in national regard. With your support, Mock Convention 2020 will continue this unique tradition of passion and excellence.
95% of W&L students
Almost the entire W&L student body gets involved in some capacity to bring this organization to life, producing a stunningly accurate result while gaining an unparalleled real-world education.
Mock Convention is characterized by a few key events to promote our prediction; we jump start the process with Spring Kick-Off in May 2019, celebrate with the best at the Presidential Gala in Fall 2019, invigorate the town of Lexington with the Convention Parade in February 2020. All these and more are made possible by your generous donations.
What can you do to help?
Our goal for Mock Convention 2020 is $500,000.
That number represents 70% of the Mock Con budget, and it's up to us, the student leaders, to raise it.
10% of our overall funds are allocated from the university, plus about 20% generated by Mock Con endowment interest. The remaining 70% comes from your donations and purchases.
It's a serious goal, and we need your help to reach it. Whether it's $5, $50, or $5,000, every donation brings us one step closer to hosting the best convention yet. Will you join us?
