About

Show Swarthmore Your Love

Share your Swarthmore love and support current students by making your gift now. If you’re one of the first 500 donors, your gift of any amount will be matched with $150 thanks to an anonymous alum from the Class of 1991. And once we reach our goal of 500 donors, an anonymous alum from the Class of 1964 will contribute an additional $25,000 for Swarthmore students!

The Day of Giving brings our community together to support all areas of the College. From financial aid and mental health counseling to athletics and academic innovation, there is so much that makes the Swarthmore experience special.

A Bonus Match

Thank you to the 450+ alumni, families, and friends who have made the Day of Giving a roaring success so far. Our Class of 1964 challenger is impressed that so many community members have already shown their love for Swarthmore by making a gift.

They're doubling the bonus to $50,000 if we reach our NEW goal of 750 donors before noon ET today! 

That means there is $125,000 on the table to support Swarthmore students and make your gift go farther.

Keep the momentum going by making your gift now!
