About

RAISE OUR GAME: 

Calling all Low-Heywood, Thomas, King, Low-Heywood Thomas, KLHT, and King School alumni to join us in the Viking Pride Alumni Challenge! 

We challenge you to participate in the Viking Pride Alumni Challenge, a philanthropic competition where alumni join together to #RaiseOurGame and welcome the Class of 2021 to the alumni association! This June, we are hoping to reach 93 gifts in honor of our 93 graduating seniors. As you make your gift, we encourage you to designate your donation to an area that is personally meaningful and reflects your high school experience!

COMPETITIONS:

The Viking Pride Alumni Challenge will run for the entire month of June, and we will also crown a Class Champion on June 30. As you can see on the leaderboard (click donors to view), the Class Challenge is cumulative - thank you to all of our alumni donors! Make your gift today and help propel your Class to victory!

  • Challenge #1 - 93 Gifts for 93 Graduates
    • Let’s give a warm welcome to the newest members of our Alumni Association! The Class of 2021 is following in YOUR footsteps and attending some of the top colleges and universities across the country and abroad. 
  • Challenge #2 - Class Challenge
    • In the Class Challenge, each graduating class competes for bragging rights and the right to call themselves the very best! The graduating class with the highest participation rate will be crowned the champion.

#RaiseOurGame, rally your classmates, and strengthen your alma mater! Support the Class of 2021, compete for bragging rights, and strive for a first-place finish. We’ll be giving away swag to every 5th donor in the month of June as well as to the winning Class!

RULES:

The minimum gift to participate in the Viking Pride Alumni Challenge is $5.

  • The class challenge leaderboard is based on overall alumni participation.
  • No one donor or group of donors can give on behalf of others or on behalf of an entire class.
  • The Class challenge is cumulative, meaning all alumni gifts to King School received so far during this fiscal year, which kicked-off on July 1, 2020 are reflected in the leaderboard. Gifts that are received will support the King Fund, which strengthens your alma mater by providing financial access, faculty support, and experiential learning opportunities that prepare students for success in college and beyond.
