Battle of the Departments: Our Faculty and Staff have been divided into four teams and have been challenged to get the most participation on Giving Day!

  • If a Team achieves 75 donors on Giving Day (donors include yourself, friends family, neighbors, etc), they will unlock a Dessert and Wine Social for their team members!
  • The Team that reaches the highest percentage of participation from Housatonic staff and faculty, will unlock $1,000 to be added to their total!

You can make a gift now and help bring your team to victory!

Save or Pie: One member from each team has volunteered to take a whipped cream pie to the face if their department places in the last two places for participation in the Battle of Departments. Make sure to support your department to save your professors from the Pie!

Giving Day Dream Team Student Champions: It is easier than ever for students to get involved by joining the Dream Team. Students can join the Dream Team by clicking here!
