Giving Day 2019: Friends of Athletics

This campaign ends on February 28 at 12:00AM EST


In honor of Giving Day, the anniversary of Colby’s founding on February 27, 1813, Friends of Athletics is rallying alumni, students, parents, and friends to come together to make their mark on the student athlete experience.

A generous donor has stepped up to amplify your impact on Giving Day. If Friends of Athletics collectively secures 1,000 donors from Feb. 1 to 27, an $80,000 gift will be unlocked and distributed equally among each of the 17 Friends of Athletics groups.

Make your gift. Challenge your friends. Spread the word through social media.

If you have any questions, we're happy to help. Please contact the Colby Fund office at 1-800-311-3678 or colbyfund@colby.edu.

Let’s dare northward, together.

A gift to Giving Day counts as a gift to the Dare Northward campaign.
