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 Metaphonian alumnae to unite in support of the actives.
You can help the Mets win Society Challenge X for the FOURTH time by making a gift to the Metaphonian 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 Met alumnae who rallied on their behalf.
A word about the Metaphonian Society Endowed Scholarship: We are proud to announce that Met alumnae have reached the $50,000 threshold to reach full endowment last year which means the first award will be made in the 2020/2021 academic year. Your support of this scholarship will still make a difference, as it will grow the endowment allowing for larger and/or additional awards to made each year. This scholarship is in memory of Miss Karen Pilkington and Miss Dee Hochstetler, who tragically passed away while still in college (1979 and 1995, respectively). Both misses were very special to their families and friends, and your gift to the scholarship will honor their memory and celebrate Met sisterhood, going strong since 1924.
The more than $103,000 reflected above represents the collective giving of Metaphonian 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 Mets in Society Challenge X.
