Which class leads the GOLD challenge?

03/11/2010

245 donors to go!

Connecticut College’s young alumni have responded to the GOLD Challenge in impressive numbers and are three-quarters of the way toward their goal of reaching 999 donors from the classes of 2000-2009 by the College’s 99th birthday on April 5.

Follow the challenge on Facebook.

The Class of 2007 leads the challenge, reaching 100 donors on Tuesday, and the Class of 2009 is close behind.

If they make it, Trustee Zoe K. Henriquez ’99 will donate $25,000 to be added evenly to the gifts made by the ten GOLD alumni classes. Read her letter to the GOLD classes.

Young alumni can become a part of the challenge by making a gift at http://giving.conncoll.edu or a pledge by e-mailing annualfund@conncoll.edu. All gifts and pledges received by April 5 count toward the 999 goal regardless of their dollar amount.
