About

Feb. 27 marks the anniversary of Colby’s charter signing in 1813, and we want to celebrate 204 years of Mule pride. No need to pack your bags to join the party.

If 10,000 donors celebrate the College, Colby will receive $204,000. 

Make your gift. Challenge your friends. Talk about it on social media. Make phone calls. Encourage everyone you know to give back to the College you celebrate.

You have until midnight on Monday, February 27 to make your gift. All gifts will be counted in the Challenge.
