About

The Class-Color Cup is back! This time it is a two-day (48 hour)  participation challenge for The Mount Holyoke Fund running from February 28-March 1. (Mary Lyon's birthday through the first day of Women's History Month!)

The top 3 classes in each color with the most donors during the 48 challenge period will win challenge funds to be added to their fundraising total at the end of the year.

NEW: Inspired by the tremendous outpouring of support during these challenges, if we reach 3,000 alumnae donors overall, an anonymous donor will give an additional $50,000 to MHC!

Make your gift. Challenge your friends. Talk about it on social media. Make phone calls. Encourage everyone you know to give back to our beloved alma mater. Your participation and advocacy will unlock these challenge funds for Mount Holyoke!

You have until 11:59 pm on March 1 to make your gift. All new gifts will be counted in the Challenge.  

Learn more about the Class-Color Cup and check out our toolkit of digital resources.

Amazing! We reached over 2,000 donors and $250,000 before 1 p.m.! This just goes to show what the MHC alumnae community can do when we work together! Are you following the leaderboards? This is still anyone's game! 


Oops... sorry 1996! We accidentally had 1988 listed as being in 3rd place. It has been corrected!

We're at 40%!

Wow!  We have officially reached 40% of our goal - over 1,200 alumnae have contributed over $151,000 so far, and the competition for the top three spots in each color has been very close!  Can we reach 50% of our goal before the end of day 1?
