Rise Up with the Garnet Challenge

This campaign ended on April 05, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Swarthmore College by clicking here!

NEW CHALLENGE: 1,500 donors for an additional $1,500 to support student-athletes!

If we reach 1,500 donors, a generous donor will give an additional $1,500 to support our student-athletes. So far over 1,200+ people have made a gift to the Rise Up with the Garnet Athletics Challenge! There is less than 24 hours left to join them.

CHALLENGE FROM OUR VERY OWN DOA! $1,000 for 1,000!

If we reach 1,000 donors, our very own Director of Athletics, Adam Hertz, will give an additional $1,000 to support our student-athletes. Thank you to the 800+ people who have already made a gift to the Rise Up with the Garnet Athletics Challenge! If you haven't, please consider joining them by making your gift now! Together, we can make Swarthmore Athletics stronger than ever.

 CHALLENGE: $5,000 for 500 more donors!

Thanks to another generous alum-athlete, we're setting the bar even higher for our next challenge! We need 500 more donors for an additional $5,000! Plus, since we all love competition, the three varsity teams with the highest donor participation will each earn $1,000.

CHALLENGE: 300 donors + 3 days = $25,000

Let’s rise to the challenge together! If 300 people make a gift before noon (EDT) on April 5, a generous alum-athlete will donate $25,000 to Swarthmore Athletics! 

It’s all about being a team player for this challenge, so the number of supporters is what matters most. We encourage and appreciate gifts of all sizes, from $1 to $100,000. Show your pride and support current and future Garnet student-athletes by making a gift today!


After making your gift, share the love on social media by tagging your posts with #GarnetRiseUp and encouraging your teammates, friends, and family to make their gifts. 


GO GARNET! 

All gifts to the Rise Up with the Garnet Athletics Challenge count in Swarthmore's Changing Lives, Changing the World campaign.
