2nd Annual Class-Color Cup | Feb 28-Mar 1

The 2nd annual

Class-Color Cup

The Class-Color Cup is a two-day participation challenge for The Mount Holyoke Fund designed to show the power of the MHC community when we work together. The three classes in each class color with the most donors between February 28 and March 1 will win challenge funds towards their class total for The Mount Holyoke Fund. (Plus bragging rights!) Even better: If we reach a total of 3,000 donors, an anonymous alumna will give $50,000 to MHC!

Key info for 2019:

  • The challenge is just 48 hours: February 28–March 1.
  • Classes compete by class colors, not decades.
  • The top three classes in each color with the most donors during the challenge period will win.
  • The easiest way to give is through GiveCampus. Gifts can also be made through Venmo, PayPal or the MHC gift form. For more information about using GiveCampus, check out this handy guide.
