Giving Day 2018

This campaign ended on February 27, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Colby College by clicking here!

Giving Day celebrates the College's northward legacy—a courageous, bold, and daring journey that began Feb. 27, 1813.

To celebrate Giving Day, a generous donor has offered up to $125,000 to match every gift of any size with $200 until midnight tonight, Feb. 27. This challenge is open to donors who have already supported previous Giving Day 2018 incentives. Limited to one $200 match per donor.

Throughout the month, donor-participation benchmarks were met, unlocking a series of challenge gifts.
