Goucher Challenge

On Thursday May 6, 2021 we kick off our 4th Goucher Challenge! This special day we ask our entire community to come together and show you are #GoucherProud by participating in making a gift.

The challenge begins on May 6, so check back then for the giving link!

The Goucher Challenge – By The Decades!

This year the decades have been challenged by their classmates! Can each decade reach 100 donors by the end of the day? When a decade reaches their goal, a lead gift will be unlocked for the college! A generous thank you to the decade lead donors:

More Impact - All Gifts Matched

Gifts of all sizes and designations count in the decade donor totals. But we have a special opportunity to receive even more funds for the college! An anonymous donor has offered to match every gift made to the Greater Goucher Fund (GGF) or Parent and Family Fund at $0.50 to each $1, up to a total gift of $400,000 to the GGF. So make your gift have the biggest impact today by supporting the GGF or Parent and Family Fund!
