Swatober Superhero Challenge!

This campaign ended on October 10, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Swarthmore College by clicking here!

Make participation your superpower! 

Support Swarthmore students facing unexpected financial needs by joining your fellow young alums during the Swatober Superhero Challenge.

From October 3 through October 10, the Eugene M. Lang Fund for the Future will match each gift from young alums (2005-2018) with a $100 contribution to the Student Emergency Fund, which covers costs for things like medical care and expenses, grad school application fees, interview clothing, emergency flights home, DACA renewal fees, and more. Last year, the Student Emergency Fund helped 159 students.  

Our goal is to reach 500 donors, which would secure $50,000 to help students in times of need. Be a superhero for Swatties and give now to help us ensure a Swarthmore education remains accessible, inclusive, and extraordinary!
