Match Madness

The Match Madness Challenge is back and bigger than ever! 

All month long, the Trustees are matching gifts to The Simmons Fund up to $1,000,000! 

That means more scholarships, more support for faculty research, and twice the transformative learning experiences that prepare our students for their life’s work.

Why now? It has been a very important year in Simmons history, with the opening of the Center for Student Success and Multicultural Center and the announcement of four new colleges to be launched in the fall, including the Gwen Ifill College of Media, Arts, and Humanities. The Trustees recognize the transformational power of this moment and are stepping up to support these initiatives and invite you to join them.

  • Monthly Sustaining Gift: Set up a monthly donation and the Trustees will match the total 12 times. So a gift of $10 a month ($120 a year) will be multiplied by twelve, which means a $1,440 match!
  • Three-year Commitment: Make a three-year pledge, and the Trustees will match it 3 times. A gift of $50 a year will be matched immediately 3 times, for a total of $300.
  • Single Gift: The Trustees will match every gift in March dollar for dollar, doubling the impact! 

Choose an option to give now and put your impact in motion!
