The 1864 Challenge

This campaign ended on April 27, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Swarthmore College by clicking here!

To celebrate Swarthmore's Changing Lives, Changing the World campaign, we invite you to join the entire Swarthmore community as part of a special campaign challenge. 

If 1,864 donors make a gift in 1,864 minutes, a board member and spouse will donate $1,000,000 for financial aid and beyond-the-classroom opportunities!

Will you help Swarthmore continue to change lives and the world?
