NEC Madness

This campaign ended on April 01, 2017, but you can still make a gift to New England College by clicking here!

It's Game Time! This March, rally your classmates to be the team with the highest participation level of all NEC Pilgrims. This is your chance to make a difference for New England College students today, re-connect with your classmates, and be an advocate for your school. 

Why get involved with a gift during NEC Madness? Pilgrims have always been part of a creative and supportive community. Your gift to the Opportunity Fund will go towards scholarships, student activities, and academic programs for today's Pilgrims, allowing you to support the NEC community you know and love. Better yet, by sharing the challenge with fellow alumni and classmates you can amplify your impact! Check out the NEC Madness Social Media Toolkit here.

Class years are grouped into 16 teams. Check out which team you're on below, and let the Madness begin!
