Inspire Others Challenge Raises Funds for Scholarships

This June, a group of Colorado College alumni are challenging 1,000 fellow Tigers to make a gift to the college.

This June, a group of Colorado College alumni are challenging 1,000 fellow Tigers to make a gift to the college. Gifts of any amount count toward the Inspire Others Challenge, and if 1,000 alumni give by June 30, it will unlock $100,000 for student scholarships and financial aid.

“This is a great opportunity for alumni to make a gift before the end of the college’s fiscal year and really make it count,” says Kerry Brooke Steere, director of Annual Giving. “Some of our alumni are choosing to make gifts in the amount of their class year, which is a fun way to give back and ensure that we’re opening doors to future trailblazing students who will thrive at CC.”

When Nancy Nagel Gibbs ’71 gave the Commencement address at CC May 21, she recalled how much her Colorado College education had given her.
 
“At CC I learned how to learn, how to analyze, how to commit to goals, to collaborate, to build community, and believe that I could make a difference and change the world,” Gibbs said.

The anonymous alumni who issued the challenge believe that alumni who give back by June 30 will appreciate that their gift helps students who might otherwise not be able to access a CC education.

Take part in the challenge.
