Social action. Academics. Athletics. When Swarthmoreans unite around a goal, our collective strength makes anything possible.

That’s how “Changing Lives, Changing the World” will succeed—as an inclusive effort.

On April 26 at noon EDT, join forces for a special challenge honoring the College’s founding: 1,864 donors in 1,864 minutes. If the goal is met before 7:04 p.m. April 27, an anonymous Board of Managers member and their spouse will donate $1 million.
