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 Franklin alumni to unite in support of the actives.
You can help the Franklins move up in the Society Challenge X standings by making a gift to the Franklin Society Endowed Scholarship, the Whittier Fund, or any fund designation you are passionate about. With this year being the eve of the 100th anniversary of the Franklin Society, it would be wonderful for the actives to return in the Fall with extra cash in their actives’ fund made possible by Franklin alumni who rallied on their behalf.
A word about the Franklin Society Endowed Scholarship: Generous Franklin alumni have donated $17,967 towards this Scholarship which will benefit Franklin actives exclusively ($50,000 is required for endowment). Once fully funded, the scholarship will forever support well-rounded Franklin actives and honor lifelong friendships, going strong since 1921.
The more than $137,000 reflected above represents the collective giving of Franklin alumni 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 Franklins in Society Challenge X.
