300K Giving Challenge

Participation Challenge

$150,000 in challenge money will be distributed among the approved Trustee Challenge designations that receive the greatest number of gifts, which can be made in any amount.

For example, a designation that receives 10 percent of all gifts made today will receive 10 percent of the challenge money, or $15,000.

Please note: Multiple gifts from the same donor/household to the same designation will only be counted once.

Percentage standings will be updated throughout the day on the challenge website.

Preliminary results will be posted on Friday, April 29. Final results of gifts by designation will be completed by July 15.

Financial Aid Challenge

For every 1,000 gifts Bucknell receives today — to any designation, in any amount — the trustees will donate $25,000 in financial aid to benefit talented, deserving students, up to $100,000:

  • 1,000 gifts = $25,000
  • 2,000 gifts = $50,000
  • 3,000 gifts = $75,000
  • 4,000 gifts = $100,000

The financial aid challenge money will be added to the general financial aid pool for fiscal year 2017 for distribution in the 2016-17 academic year.
