GOLD Challenge for Scholarships

On April 5, Graduates of the Last Decade gathered around the world to party with a purpose. The worldwide GOLD parties kick-started the GOLD Challenge for Scholarships, a two-week campaign for financial aid.

This challenge unites young alumni to crowdfund a scholarship for a Cardinal in the incoming Class of 2022. Last year, GOLD alumni collectively raised over $65,000 during the GOLD Challenge for Scholarships, which allowed Wesleyan to award a scholarship to a student from the class of 2021!

Between April 5 and 21, 2018, we are asking GOLD alumni to unite once again and make a gift towards the scholarship goal of $65,000.

Every gift matters; No matter the amount, together your gifts will make a difference!
