Giving Day 2020: Friends of Athletics

This campaign ended on February 27, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Colby College by clicking here!

Since its founding on Feb. 27, 1813, Colby has inspired trailblazers, pace-setters, and solution-seekers, daring them to make bold moves by combining ambition with courage. Help us prove what's possible when a community comes together to reach a goal of 1,000 donors to Friends of Athletics in February. Support your favorite team today.

$100,000* from Trustee Jim Crook '78 P'11 and Andrea Crook P'11 was unlocked at the 1,000 donor milestone.  Let's keep the momentum going!
