Alumni can double their philanthropic impact thanks to a new partnership between The Washington Center and Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Massachusetts.


Throughout 2015, the BCBSMA Challenge Grant will match every gift to the Massachusetts Scholarship Fund up to $15,000. In addition to the annual funding from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, this scholarship fund enables college and university students to spend a transformative semestrking and learning in Washington, D.C.

"We challenge others to join us to help provide financial support for students who might otherwise not be able to afford this outstanding personal and professional program," says Mike Caljouw, BCBSMA's vice president of state government and regulatory affairs.

Massachusetts alumni have an added incentive to take the BCBSMA Challenge Grant in April. Through April 30, any gift to the Massachusetts Scholarship Fund of $50 or more not only gets matched by BCBSMA - it also enters the donor in a raffle for two tickets to the June 24 Red Sox vs. Orioles game at Fenway Park. And gifts of any amount made by alumni during April give donors priority access to TWC's allotment of tickets for the June 24 game.


Alumni can participate in the BCBSMA Challenge Grant Program by visiting this website and directing their gift to "The Massachusetts Scholarship Fund" in the drop-down menu.
