The Story

Support Mount Wachusett Community College’s 3rd annual Hike for the Humanities fundraiser on Saturday, October 29, at 9:30 am in the Wachusett Visitor Center parking lot in Princeton, MA.


The event includes hiking to the summit of Wachusett Mountain from 2 to 5 miles on hiking trails or a paved road.


Our goal is to raise at least $6,000. This money will endow annual themed public humanities programming such as book discussions, lectures, humanities performances, films, and activities that strengthens humanities education within north central Massachusetts (refer to for details).


This fundraiser supports MWCC’s 1 million National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge grant. All funds will be matched 50% by NEH . To date, the college has already raised over $225,000 or almost one quarter of the match. Remember all money raised will be matched by the National Endowment for the Humanities 50%.
