Greek Challenge 2021

75% of 641 Donor goal
This campaign ended on November 22, 2021, but you can still make a gift to Doane University by clicking here!

Greek Challenge is a fun, spirited competition that is rooted in the rivalry that dates back to the founding of Doane's Greek organizations.

Greek Challenge is comprised of two parts: traditional phonathon and an online crowdfunding campaign.

The phonathon component embraces that rivalry as each fall Greek actives call their alumni to visit, provide updates, raise money for initiatives that support the Doane experience for all students, all the while competing for prize money for their organizations. 

While the calling portion of the phonathon will remain, we've added an online component and creating, a social media style campaign, to help the students reach more alumni. 

Each Greek organization is challenged to engage with and receive gifts from 15% of their alumni base.* There will be prizes for the most money raised, largest percentage of base participating, most alumni contacted via phone, and most gifts made on the platform. Prizes are as follows:

$400 - largest amount raised

$300 - largest percentage of base participating

$150 - most alumni contacted

$150 - most gifts made online

*Each group's alumni base was calculated based on the current email and phone contact information we have for alumni.

WOW-Amazing Results!

Greek Challenge 2021 was our biggest yet with a grand total of $86,732 raised in pledges and gifts received for a variety of designations including the Doane Fund.

Thank you to all our advocates, donors, matching gift donors and our amazing students for making it all possible.

Delta Kappa Pi is the winner in total dollars raised with more than $30,000. 

Gamma Phi Iota is the winner in most contacts via phone with 77, most online gifts with 135, and largest alumni participation percentage - achieving 136% of their goal.

We are so thankful for all of your support. Thank you and best wishes during this holiday season.
