About

The Goat Nation Giving Challenge is Back! 

Will you help us set a new PR? 


You are the GOAT! With hours left to spare, you raised over $175,000 for WPI Athletics, closing in on the highest dollar total ever for the Goat Nation Giving Challenge. (In 2021, you contributed over $178,000!) 

In addition to supporting your team directly, don’t forget to give to the WPI Fund for Athletics, which helps all student-athletes, on each team, grow and develop as individuals and allows our department to continue providing enhancements to our athletic program that give us a winning edge.




You know how valuable a WPI Athletics experience can be. It’s where our student-athletes can find their people, the ones who have their back and help them become not only a better athlete and student, but person.


This Goat Nation Giving Challenge, from February 12-16, make a gift to help your team continue to provide that experience for today’s student-athletes.


Want to have an even greater impact? Consider leveraging your gift as a challenge or match to inspire others to give. Challenges and matches can be offered at almost any level. You can offer to match gifts to a team up to a certain amount or unlock your gift when a set number of donors to a fund is reached. The choice is yours! Use the buttons on the left to get started!


Yes, the team can count on me! I’m a WPI Super Fan!

Your support matters
Updates
Goat Nation, you hit it out of the park!

Year after year, we have called on your generosity in supporting our student-athletes. And as every time before, we knew the teams could count on you. 

With more than 1020 donors and over $192,000, your commitment has blown us away once again. Without a doubt, what you have achieved here this week will provide transformative support for WPI Athletics. You are the GOAT! 

Stay tuned for additional thanks from the teams and final tallies next week. For now, rest assured that they have received your message loud and clear—you are someone who cares deeply about our student-athletes and who believes in them as they work toward their ambitious goals on and off the field and court.

It simply means the world to have you in our corner. Thank you.

Final Hours of GNGC start NOW!

Hey Goat Nation! 

We are in the final hours of GNGC2024 and appreciate all the support so far! Please help us reach our goal of at least $175k, as we demonstrate how important WPI Athletics means to all of us with our collective impact.  If you’ve given already - thank you! and please help by reaching out to others and encourage their participation.  

And when giving (or giving again!), please consider the WPI Athletics General Fund that helps all 600 student-athletes and our 18 teams with their care and performance development.

Go Goats!!

Dana L. Harmon, Director of Athletics
