What is The Class Challenge?
The Class Challenge invites each alumni class to raise funds through projects or individual donations from class members, to generate funds matching their class year in dollars. For example, the class of 2008 is "challenged" the generate $2008.00 in donations.
How are Class Challenge Donations Used?
Challenge contributions received by the Quaker Foundation are used to support the goals of our organization, including student scholarships, classroom grants and The Quaker Pride newsletter.
How Can I Help?
You will find information in the Reunion Planning Packet. Some classes have challenged class members to send a donation of one cent for each digit of their class year. For example, class of 1980 members would donate $19.80.
