Emory & Henry College Wins—Along with everyone else!
A BIG THANK YOU to the generous new 104 E&H Donors for helping us win the Alumni Donation Challenge versus Guilford College. Everyone wins as Emory & Henry will make a charitable food bank donation as well.
The real winner of the contest is the Stone Soup Food Pantry in Abingdon, Va. and The Servant Center in Greensboro, N.C. who will BOTH be receiving a check for $500 to fight the battle against hunger. At this time of year, we give thanks to both alumni groups for a spirited challenge. To all of the donors who made a gift, thank you for proving yet again the powerful connection that exists between E&H alumni and Emory & Henry College.
President Jane Fernades of Guilford College and Myra Sims, E&H athletic director exchange congratulations.
It doesn’nt take an Alumni Challenge to be able to give to the college. Donations are welcome and encouraged at anytime!

Your gift counts if you:
- Graduated within the last 10 years and haven’t made a gift since June 30, 2015
- Or you have never donated to the College, no matter what your class year
In this contest, both colleges will seek gifts from alumni who graduated within the last 10 years and who have not yet made a gift in the 2015-16 fiscal year. The college will also seek gifts from those alumni, regardless of their graduation year, who will be making their first-ever gift to the college.
From the annual fund to the arts center, E&H alumni are invited to make a gift of any size to any area of interest or need at the College. The contest will start at 9 a.m. EST on Monday, Nov. 9 and will run through noon Friday, Nov. 13.
So what's at stake?
The College with the most eligible alumni gifts will have a donation made to a food bank of the winning institution's choice (Emory & Henry has designated the Stone Soup Food Pantry in Abingdon, Va. as the beneficiary of its victory). Updates on the total number of eligible gifts will be made through Wednesday, Nov. 11.
The winning school will be announced at halftime of the Saturday, Nov. 14 football game in Guilford.
Help Us Win!
Any donation from alumni who graduated in 2005 or since and from those who have never made a gift to the college will help us be victorious in the BEAT GUILFORD CHALLENGE - AGAIN! And remember, your gift, should we win, will also support the Stone Soup Food Pantry. Make a new gift from Nov. 9 -14.

A Quick Re-Cap from the 2014 Alumni Challenge:
In 2014, Emory & Henry College challenged Guilford College to an Alumni Donation Challenge—with the loosing team’s college president agreeing to dress in winning college’s team colors. It was a close competition, but our wonderful E&H Alumni rallied in the final days to beat Guilford. The winner was announced during halftime at the E&H Wasps VS. Guilford Quakers football game of 2014, where Guilford’s college president, Jane Fernandes, donned Emory & Henry themed attire for all to see.
