WHAT:  Go Falcons Challenge!

WHEN:  October 17, 2017, 12:01 AM - 11:59 PM

WHY:  Our first ever Day of Giving to raise funds from alumni, friends and family to support Fitchburg State Athletics. By making a gift to the General Athletic Booster Fund or a specific team, you are providing the margin of excellence that allows our program to grow and succeed. These experiences give the next generation of athletes an opportunity to compete at a higher level and keeps them motivated to keep working hard throughout the season.

The winner of the first ever

Go Falcons Challenge



In just one day we exceeded all expectations. As of midnight last night, we raised $14,816 from 529 donors to support our Falcon sports teams.

 And the gifts are still coming in! By this morning we had hit the $15,000 mark and are well on the way to 600 donors.

 Even though the Go Falcons Challenge is officially over, you can still make a gift to your favorite sport today or any day.

 THANK YOU to everyone who participated and made gifts to your favorite teams.
