X Marks the Swat

This campaign ended on November 01, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Swarthmore College by clicking here!

Celebrate the 10th Annual Swatober Young Alumni Challenge with X Marks the Swat! 

From now through October 31, you can support every Swattie on their journey to change the world. 

Gifts of any size from young alumni like you will be matched with a $200 gift from David '75 and Katherine Bradley—up to  $100,000! 

Your support provides the elements that help all students thrive, such as 

  • loan-free financial aid 
  • collaborative research with professors 
  • hundreds of arts and athletics activities 
  • social justice initiatives 
  • and more. 

Last academic year, 1,100+ young alumni supported Swarthmore students by making gifts to the Student Emergency Fund, Swarthmore Fund, Swarthmore Athletics, student organizations and clubs, and academic departments.

A vital component of our Changing Lives, Changing the World campaign, young alumni support helps ensure that a Swarthmore education remains accessible, inclusive, and extraordinary.

Help Swarthmore students map their way towards a full and meaningful future by making your gift during the X Marks the Swat Swatober Challenge!
