Thanks to our extremely generous Arts & Sciences community, over 500 donors joined hands and gave more than $400,000, exceeding our goal of raising $300,000. We can’t thank everyone enough for their generosity, which directly helps to advance the College experience for current and future students.

Your Friends at the College Foundation


April 24-25 marks the return of the College's annual giving day, Hoo Rah Raise. You can help us reach our goal of raising $300,000 in 24 hours by making a gift to the College Fund. This allows the College to continue hiring critical new faculty, providing seed money for student and faculty research, and enhancing fellowships for graduate students.

Our Benefactors Society Board has generously offered a 1:1 match for all Hoo Rah Raise gifts to the College Fund. Every gift of any amount will be matched, up to $150,000. Help us break last year's record by participating in this challenge!

How can I participate?

  • Make a gift of any amount to the College Fund.
  • Post a photo or video on social media with the hashtag #HooRahRaise.

  • Is there a minimum gift amount? No. All gifts are meaningful.

If I am in my reunion year, does a gift to Hoo Rah Raise count toward my class reunion totals? Yes. Gifts and pledge payments made during this 24-hour challenge will count in your class reunion totals.

Are donations tax deductible? Yes. You will receive an email confirmation that will serve as a receipt for tax purposes.
