Chairman's Challenge

This campaign ended on June 30, 2017, but you can still make a gift to New England College by clicking here!

It's been a record year for NEC in so many ways. 2017 saw the largest ever NEC graduating class; 729 graduates finished strong and launched forth with NEC degrees in hand. 7 NEC athletic teams finished strong and made it to conference championships this academic year, including the men's lacrosse team who won the championship for the second year in a row! 

The academic and athletic success of NEC students wouldn't be possible without the involvement and support of alumni and friends of New England College. This year the Opportunity Fund, which funds student scholarships, athletics, academics and more at NEC, is on pace to finish strong with some of the highest participation ever!

That's why incoming Chairman of the Board of Trustees and 1975 New England College alum Lex Scourby is issuing a June fundraising challenge!

The goal of the Chairman's Challenge is to ensure that the Opportunity Fund finishes strong and matches the record success that NEC students are achieving. Every gift, every year, everyone who gives back to NEC supports student scholarships and success. The goal is to raise $60,000 by June 30. Lex will match dollar for dollar every gift before the end of June up to $30,000. Every gift counts!
