Third Annual Hike for the Humanities
Support Mount Wachusett Community College’s 3rd annual Hike for the Humanities fundraiser on Saturday, October 29, at 9:30 am in the Wachusett Visitor Center parking lot in Princeton, MA.
The event includes hiking to the summit of Wachusett Mountain from 2 to 5 miles on hiking trails or a paved road.
Our goal is to raise at least $6,000. This money will endow annual themed public humanities programming such as book discussions, lectures, humanities performances, films, and activities that strengthens humanities education within north central Massachusetts (refer to mwcc.edu/humanitiesproject for details).
This fundraiser supports MWCC’s 1 million National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge grant. All funds will be matched 50% by NEH . To date, the college has already raised over $225,000 or almost one quarter of the match. Remember all money raised will be matched by the National Endowment for the Humanities 50%.
