Bill Goldfarb Issues a Challenge

Trustee Bill Goldfarb '68
Established in 2003 with a gift from Trustee William H. Goldfarb '68, P'00, Colby's Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement has relied on grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in its first four years. Now it needs a permanent endowment of $4 million to sustain the center's impressive programming and impact. Toward that, Bill Goldfarb has pledged $1 million—providing that the Colby community can raise the additional $3 million in the next two and a half years.

The challenge has been set up such that Bill will match the first $25,000 of any gift between $25,000 and $100,000 designated for endowment to support center programming. So your gift of $25,000 would become $50,000; a gift of $50,000 would become $75,000; one of $75,000, $100,000. However, the challenge will be met only when the College has raised a total of $3 million from other donors.
