Journey Together: 48-Hour Challenge

UPDATE: $50,000 Goal Reached, New Challenge Goal Announced!

You are amazing! We reached our $50,000 goal before we even reached the halfway point of our challenge. Can we set a new record?

Our challengers have issued an additional $35,000 in matching funds. Now, up to $85,000 in giving to the Journey Scholarship Fund will be matched!

Kick off the year with twice the impact!

The Central community is the BEST! Our alumni, parents and friends rise to the challenge year after year to help our students succeed!

This year, thanks to that amazing foundation of generosity, Central is proud to award more than $1.6 million in direct, donor-funded aid through the Journey Scholarship Fund!

We couldn't offer this crucial support without our Central family, working together.

Help kick off the new academic year in a BIG way through the Journey Together: 48-Hour Challenge! Up to $50,000 in gifts to the Journey Scholarship Fund will be matched!

Even if you made a gift recently, this is your chance to double your impact.

No matter the amount — $25, $100 or $1,000 —  your gift directly supports students, so join us Aug. 17-19, and help make a BIG difference. Go Dutch!

Thank you to our generous challengers for their incredible support: 
Mark ’80 & Lori Kooiker Ellingson ’82; Barb & Tom Gaard ’61; Mike Main ’87; Jeff Oliver ’79; Penny Harris Renyan ’71; Wendy & Nick Richtsmeier ’01; Lance & Judi Clauson Vogel ’82; and anonymous benefactors.
