Goat Nation Giving Challenge

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.

Emmanuel Akese ’10, ’11 recently volunteered on WPI’s Black Alumni Panel hosted by the Heebner Career Development Center (CDC), as a way to give back to his alma mater. Acknowledging generations of committed WPI supporters for the positive impact they had on his life, Emmanuel says, “Like many alumni, WPI set me up for a successful career. That is because those who came before me devoted their time to ensure students got the necessary support and had access to the good counsel and guidance of engaged alumni. The least I could do was to make myself available for support so that those after me can also benefit.”
