Beginning on March 1, Saint Anselm College asked alumni from the classes of 2014 to 2005 to participate in what has become an annual giving event: March Challenge.
Every year, classmates are challenged to band together, competing against other class years to donate the most gifts to The Saint Anselm Fund during the month of March.
For March Challenge, it doesn't matter how much the gift; it matters how many alumni are giving. Foundations, grant-giving institutions, and ranking publications like U.S. News and World Report measure Saint Anselm based on alumni participation-the number of participants, rather than individual or total gift amounts.
Gifts of any amount can be designated to athletics, campus ministry or scholarships through specific areas including Anselmian Scholarships, Anselmian Support, Anselmian Academics, Anselmian, Life, and Anselmian Athletics. Learn more »

Through March Challenge, overall young alumni participation has increased the last three years. In 2014, the class of 2012 gave the most gifts but 398 young alumni total participated, setting the record for the highest young-alumni participation rate in one month. Moreover, together alumni raised more than $15,600.
Alumni are encouraged to spread the news about the #SAChallenge through social media. Gifts must be received between March 1-31, 2015 and each class member can only be counted once.
