BENEFITING: MOUNT WACHUSETT COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOUNDATION INC
EVENT: Hike for the Humanities
EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2014
Through a $1,000,000 National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge grant, MWCC's Humanities Project is providing annual themed public humanities programming such as book discussions, lectures, humanities performances, films, and learning experiences that strengthen humanities education within north central Massachusetts.
The 1st Hike for the Humanities fundraiser is a hike up Wachusett Mountain with a goal of raising $6000, and will support MWCC’s efforts to raise $1,000,000 for the NEH grant. To date, the college has already raised $225,000 or almost one quarter of the match. For every dollar we raise, the NEH will match 50%.
Although I can’t participate in the actual hike this year, I am participating in grant intiatives with themed-based, design activities in my classroom, I am assisting with the illustration and design of t-shirts for this fundraiser, and will be recruiting students and colleagues to join in the hike. Please support my efforts by making a donation today to the MWCC Hike for the Humanities, and help support the humanities in public higher education. Thank you!
