Affinity Challenges

When an individual or group sets up an Affinity Challenge, they "challenge" others with whom they are associated to make a gift on 4.08. If you help them meet the challenge, they will make a gift for the pledged amount.

Lead an Affinity Challenge, put your money on the line, and inspire people from your class, living unit, metro area, student organizations, and beyond. By reaching your friends and networks, you make a bigger impact when you help be #AllforOneWabash.

All gifts made to Athletics affinity challenges will support an Athletic Director's Fund to strengthen all our teams and facilities.

If you are interested in launching an Affinity Challenge, please submit this short web form here. After completing the form, we will review the details and provide a challenge code that you can share with your networks and our Wabash friends and family.
