You met the Challenge!

The goal: raise $1 million to earn a $250,000 matching gift. The timeline: May 1-31. The result: SUCCESS! Thanks to your generosity, including the match from two anonymous donors, Clark raised $1,941,631 in the 531 Challenge, which is over $1 million more than was raised in May 2016. This represents 1,748 total donors, including 83 people who had never given to the University; 292 donors who are parents of current or former students; and 183 student donors. We are grateful for each gift and for your commitment to Clark University.

“Though our gowns may look like capes, we have not been equipped to save the world, but to serve it,” said senior speaker Ophelia Okuh at Clark’s 113th Commencement. Well, we think they’re all supergrads.
