When it comes to making a financial gift to Keuka College, supporters know who feels the most impact — students. Just ask the more than 300 participants of last week’s annual Green vs. Gold Day of Giving.
The online competition unites the College community in a friendly rivalry to see which team can generate the most participants to donate to the College in one day. Graduates from even-numbered years are members of the Green Team; graduates from odd-numbered years are on the Gold Team.
The May 5 effort raised more than $132,000. With contributions from 175 members, the Green Team edged out the 161 Gold Team participants. Funds raised will support capital projects, scholarships, and the College's greatest areas of need.
Faculty, staff, and friends of Keuka College also showed their College spirit by making a financial gift based on the year they began employment or first became associated with the College.
“The true winners of this competition are our student body,” said Billy Jo Jayne ’10, associate vice president for Advancement and Alumni Relations. “Thank you to all who made a gift and made a difference in the lives of Keuka College students.”
