About

The Colby Commitment Challenge: A Campaign for Financial Aid

Support from our alumni, friends, and community has made Colby a leader in accessibility, and our collective impact ensures this continues in perpetuity. 

And this week, thanks Sunil Thakor '99 and Kristin Fairman Thakor '99, every gift makes an even bigger impact. 

This year, we also have the opportunity to make an even bigger impact through a generous unlock challenge established by Sunil Thakor '99 and Kristin Fairman Thakor '99. Until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10,  they will make a generous contribution to Financial Aid for every participation milestone we unlock up to $100,000:

  • 250 Donors Unlocks $25,000
  • 500 Donors Unlocks $50,000
  • 850 Donors Unlocks $75,000
  • 1,200 Donors Unlocks $100,000

Together, we can advance Colby’s commitment to access and ensure the most talented students have access to the best education—a Colby education.  

We are seeking to further our promise to current and future students with the Colby Commitment Challenge. Every gift makes a difference as we raise critical funds. 

So, today we ask you to do what the Colby community has always done—rally together for our students. 

Accept the challenge today!
