the colby-sawyer fund 4k challenge

We Did It!

With tremendous support from alumni, colleagues, trustees and friends, we have met the 2012-2013 4K Challenge! More than 4,000 donors, at least 3,000 of whom are alumni, contributed to the Colby-Sawyer Fund by June 30th.

Together, we've moved alumni participation from 17 percent to 24 percent in one year! Through your engagement, generosity and commitment to go the distance, we were able to collect an additional $200,000 for the fund, which directly benefits the college and our current and future students.

Thank you so much for all you did to make these incredible results possible.
