Whittier College All Society Participation Challenge

Whittier College challenges Society members every year with the All Society Participation Challenge to encourage giving to the College. Giving in any amount to any college fund counts! We're especially fond of the Palmer Alumnae Endowed Scholarship for this one, so you can help us twice when you give this way. The Society with the highest participation rate -so the most members who give- wins the top prize— Homecoming Brunch at Wardman House and $1,000 for the Actives' activity fun. Palmers took the top participation prize in 2011 & 2012. The contest is ongoing for each fiscal year from July 1 to the next June 30. Give today for current year's contest.
