Your love is keeping us together, and we're celebrating Marietta College Founders Day (and Valentine's Day) with our biggest Day of Giving yet!  We're looking for 1,415 alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends to show that #MCgivesLuv by making a gift of any size between 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, February 14, and 18:35 (6:35 p.m.) on Monday, February 15.

Make your gift, challenge your friends, join us for special interactive events during those two days, and share why you have #Luv4MC on social media. Together, we'll ensure the College we love continues to thrive in 2021.

Final Results!

It's official: we've calculated the final numbers, and we're excited to announce the results of our record-setting 2021 Day of Giving!

First, the Class Challenge:

Congratulations  to the Class of 1970, who will be toasting their success with free drinks during their 50th reunion this Homecoming! They again ended up on top, setting a new record of 18.69% participation. In second place was the Class of 1998 with 13.96% participation, barely edging out the Class of 1987's  13.95%. Following them was 1971 with 13.44%, and rounding out the top five was the Class of 1976 with 13.33% participation.

The Greek Challenge was also very competitive:

We'd like to congratulate Alpha Xi Delta who took the top spot with 17.37% participation! Last year's winners, Chi Omega, weren't far behind with 16.86% participation, and Tau Kappa Epsilon proved that you don't need an active chapter to make a difference by capturing third place (and first amongst fraternities) with 14.1% participation. Rounding out our top five were Alpha Gamma Delta with 13.6%, followed by Sigma Sigma Sigma with 12.63% participation.

We'd also like to congratulate our individual raffle winners:

  • Patricia Ann Reese '67 won the first prize of the campaign by being the very first donor after midnight;
  • Geoffrey Dean ’77 will also receive a swag bag of Marietta prizes for giving at exactly 18:35 (that's 6:35 p.m.) on Founders Day;
  • Susan (“Jay”) Hauck ’85 won one of the last remaining Marietta mailboxes;
  • Todd DeLong ’87 won a Yeti mug engraved with his name and the College seal;
  • Joseph Freddoso ’83 and Charles Savery ’61 won special bottles of Elijah Craig bourbon etched with an image of Erwin Hall; and
  • Advocate Charles Reynolds '08 will be enjoying Homecoming 2021 in style from his room at the Lafayette hotel!

We all know, however, that the real winners from our Day of Giving are today's Pioneers, who will have the resources they need to finish the spring semester safely and in person thanks to the generosity of more than 1,300 members of The Long Blue Line.

Thank you for showing your #Luv4MC, and Go Pios!
