Marathon Monday Challenge

This campaign ended on April 16, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Wellesley College by clicking here!

This April, Wellesley alumnae are being challenged to spend the six days leading up to Marathon Monday giving back. 

Together we’ll make a big difference in a short period of time—and celebrate the generosity of our Wellesley community. Because during the Marathon Monday Challenge, every gift makes an even bigger impact. Ready for the details?

Fifteen Wellesley women who believe in the power of participation will collectively give $262,000 to keep Wellesley running if 2,620 alumnae make a gift to the College between April 11 and Marathon Monday, April 16. Can we count you in? 

This challenge is all about participation; giving back to what made your Wellesley experience so great, supporting future students, and building community.

It’s a can’t-miss opportunity to make your gift go even further. Join the race to 2,620 today!
