2019 Blue Nation Giving Day

This campaign ended on December 04, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Wellesley College by clicking here!

Today, we're celebrating Wellesley Athletics by bringing together current students, alumnae and former coaches to reach new goals during the second annual Friends of Athletics Blue Nation Giving Day! Wellesley Athletics is many things, but mostly, Wellesley Athletics is great because of you. Join us in supporting our student-athletes today. 

When you make a gift to Friends of Athletics, you are supporting out of region training trips, wellness initiatives and competitive excellence. Thanks to the generosity of several key donors, we have special additional challenges waiting to be unlocked: 

  • The first team to reach 25% participation unlocks $2,500 from Christine Carroll Reese '88. 
  • 375 gifts by 12:30pm unlocks a $5,000 challenge gift from Lynn Blais '83, Catherine Chuday Feddersen '84, Katie Hall '84, Janet Krevolin '84, Pam Matthews Farber โ€™84, Lisa Murphy '86 and Sally Saltzbart Minier '86. 
  • Power Hour! The club and varsity teams with the most gifts between 12:30pm-1:30pm EST will each receive $500.
  • 500 gifts by 2:30pm EST will unlock $1,000 from Director of Athletics, Bethany Ellis.

Oh, and one more thing: because we're a naturally competitive bunch, the varsity and club sport teams with the highest participation on Blue Nation Giving Day will each receive $1,500!  The teams with the second highest participation on Blue Nation Giving Day will each receive $500!  

Your support of Friends of Athletics is essential to the continued success of Wellesley varsity and club sports. Go Blue!
