Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about Feed the Tiger Challenge.

What is #FeedtheTiger?

The Feed the Tiger Challenge launched on Dec. 2, 2019, as a giving participation challenge inspired by an anonymous Colorado College alumnus who will give $25,000 toward scholarships for CC students every time 250 donors participate.

The alumnus will give up to $100,000 if we can reach our 1,000-donor goal before the challenge concludes on Dec. 18.

Our goal with the challenge is to support scholarships so CC can admit more independent thinkers, creators, and trailblazers — regardless of their financial background.

Gifts of any amount make a difference and help us reach our goal!

How can I help spread the word?

Help us energize your fellow alumni by amplifying our message via social media. Tag your posts with #FeedtheTiger, share the link, and speak with other members of the CC community to ensure they are giving. Every gift, regardless of size or designation, counts.

You can also sign up to be a Social Ambassador and see your direct impact on our Feed the Tiger Challenge efforts.
