Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  Is there a registration fee for the Alumni, Friends & Family Challenge?

Q:  Do I have to raise funds online?

A:  No.  If you prefer to raise funds from people face-to-face, there is a pledge form you can print and submit.  Collect donations, complete the form and return to Frontier College adhering to the Cash and Collection Submission Guidelines.  Please DO NOT SEND CASH IN THE MAIL.
