The Lafayette community rose to the GiveLafayette Challenge, with 570 donors contributing $103,313 in celebration of the anniversary of the College’s founding.

The goal was 480 gifts in 48 hours, starting 8 a.m. Tuesday, March 8. Donations came from 406 alumni, 61 parents, 38 students, 28 employees, and 37 friends of the College.

The list of donors, a leader board of the ten classes with the most participants, and a breakdown of donor totals by state are posted on the GiveLafayette website. Updates from throughout the challenge are also available.

Annual giving provides flexible funding that is vital to meeting pressing needs and is a key priority of the $400 million Live Connected, Lead Change campaign.
