On April 27, 2017, Oberlin College is looking for 1,000 donors from the Oberlin community to go “All In” for Oberlin. For this fundraising challenge, Chris Canavan ’84 promises to match every donation with an additional $100. To support the effort, Ed Helms ’96 enthusiastically joins third-years Khalil Rivers and Sunshine Figlio and first-year Jacob Britton in a video about the giving challenge. Watch the video.

The day’s events during All In will be livestreamed and include a full day of programming such as student musical performances, the comedic stylings of a student improv group, and conversations with faculty.
