Swatober Challenge

1,000 Young Alumni Donors

31 Days in October

$100,000 to support Swarthmore students


What is Swatober?: A special month-long young alumni giving challenge in October. During Swatober, all Swarthmore Fund gifts from the classes of 2002-2015 will be matched with an automatic $100, regardless of gift size. That's right - all gifts of all sizes are matched!

Why should I give?: Last fiscal year, alumni from the classes of 2002-2015 contributed $147,626 to Swarthmore.The vast majority of these gifts were $100 or under. That's enough to fund 3.5 average sized scholarships for students. Your Swatober gift is an excellent way to increase your impact and pay it forward to provide current students with the same enriching experiences you had as a student.

How can I make my gift? Visit our giving site at https://gift.swarthmore.edu. You can also send in a check to Gift Records at 500 College Ave Swarthmore, PA 19081. Your gift must be received by Oct 31st to qualify for the match.

What else should I know?: Be sure to join fellow alums from the classes of 2002-2015 at the Young Alumni Taligate held on October 24th during Garnet Weekend! An RSVP is required. Click here for more information.
