About

TODAY: The Giving Day Challenge

There are 1,440 Milton minutes in every day. And today, we need your help to make sure we use those minutes wisely. At any given moment, Milton students are engaging in powerful educational opportunities. Whether it's through a lively discussion around the Harkness table, kindergartners gardening, the volleyball team training in the ACC, an ah-ha moment in the lab, or a student dance concert rehearsal, our students are growing as learners and individuals across campus every Milton minute.   

We need the Milton community to come together to support our students today because when 1,000 donors make their gifts, Giving Day Challengers Ravi and Yvonne Mallela P ’22 ’24 will give $100,000 to the Milton Fund, supporting every Milton minute that students experience. 

Increase Your Impact 

When you make your gift today, you can amplify your impact by participating in one or more microchallenges. 

You can also challenge fellow classmates, match donors to a particular fund, or match anyone who simply makes a gift at a particular hour! Get creative and find ways to multiply your impact on Milton this Giving Day!
