In 2013, Colorado College triumphed in an overwhelming victory over the University of Denver, and took home the trophy in the CC vs. DU alumni participation challenge.
Flash forward four years: On Nov. 1, CC and DU went head-to-head again in the Gold Pan Giving Challenge. The plan was for the first school to receive gifts from 1,000 donors to win the challenge. However, both Colorado College and the University of Denver each received gifts from more than 1,000 donors in less than two weeks. So, the challenge has been extended.
CC vs. DU — Gold Pan Donor Challenge
The school with the most total donors before 11:59 p.m. on Giving Tuesday (Nov. 28) will take home the trophy. Alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff, and students are all eligible to participate in this year’s challenge.
Gifts also count toward the Campaign for Colorado College, a $435 million initiative that CC launched during Homecoming 2017.
If you have not made your gift yet, now is the time to show your support. Meet the challenge today!
The winner will be announced at the puck drop of the first CC vs. DU hockey game on Dec. 8, 2017.
