Society Challenge X marks the 10th year of the Society Alumni Participation Challenge which will end June 30. Larger cash prizes of $1,500 and $750, along with new incentives are up for grabs.
With the Spring semester abruptly moved online, society actives experienced the disruption of not just their academic year, they also lost opportunities to participate in a number of important society traditions and activities. There is no better time than now for Athenian alumnae to unite in support of the actives.
You can help the Athenians move up in the Society Challenge X standings by making a gift to the Athenian Society Endowed Scholarship, the Whittier Fund, or any fund designation you are passionate about. It would be wonderful for the actives to return in the Fall with extra cash in their actives’ fund made possible by Athenian alumnae who rallied on their behalf.
A word about the Athenian Society Endowed Scholarship: Funded with a generous bequest by Lady Lucie Margaret (Oldham) Mazzone '39, a past president of the Athenian Society, this Scholarship benefits the Athenian actives exclusively. It will do so in perpetuity and continue honoring the life of a beautiful Athenian Lady and Athenian sisterhood, going strong since 1929.
The more than $32,000 reflected above represents the collective giving of Athenian alumnae in the current fiscal year (as of July 1, 2019) to a number of funding priorities at Whittier College.
Give by June 30 to be counted for the Athenians in Society Challenge X.
