Ways to Give to Senior Pledge
Designating Your Gift: Everyone who gives back, whether $5 or $5,000, has the option of directing their gift towards any part of the Colby experience they feel is important or played a central role in their time here. Giving to an academic department, athletic team, or student organization helps maintain the impact those groups have and serves as a sign that group has made a significant impact in your time at Colby.
Gifts in Honor: We come from diverse backgrounds and have varied histories, but all of us owe our Colby experiences to individuals who have made lasting and significant impacts on our lives. A gift to Senior Pledge can be made in honor of someone who has made your Colby experience memorable.
Scholarship Funding: Roughly 40% of Colby students receive some form of financial aid, with an average financial aid package of roughly 45K made up entirely of grants. Gifts by alumni make it possible for hundreds of students to attend Colby every year and you can be a part of that legacy both by participating in this year’s Challenge, but also by designating your gift to financial aid at Colby.
Scheduled Pledge Payments: Senior Pledge is centered on participation, but we also want seniors to know that it can be easy to give larger sums by splitting the gift into parts. A gift of $100, for example, could pay for gas the Ultimate Frisbee team needs to get to and from a tournament. This online gift could be split into ten smaller payments of $10 each month, if the donor wanted to support their favorite club without using up all of their spending money for the month they’re making the gift in.
