An anonymous Agnes Scott College trustee has pledged to match the gift of any alumna who makes her first gift of this fiscal year to The Fund for Agnes Scott by June 30, with a gift of $100 - up to $30,000.

This challenge to Agnes Scott donors is being called the Every Gift Counts Trustee Challenge Match.

The Challenge Match is part of Agnes Scott’s The Greatness Before Us campaign, launched in October 2012, to raise $100 million. So far, more than $66 million has been raised toward that goal. All gifts made to The Fund for Agnes Scott count toward The Greatness Before Us campaign.

Thanks to gifts from individuals and foundations to the campaign, construction is set to begin this summer on the ambitious transformation of Campbell Hall into a living and learning community. The college’s next large project will be the renovation of historic Rebekah Hall, along with continued fundraising for student, faculty and programmatic support.
