Hosting a Local Alumni Event

Grinnellians who live in cities that have no formal regional alumni network often volunteer to host a local event for other Grinnellians in their area. Here’s a summary of what’s involved if you’d like to host a local event. Detailed online forms will guide you through the steps, and the Office of Development and Alumni Relations (DAR) can work with you to help make your event a success.

Please take a look at the Event Planning Guide to learn more about the steps in planning an event and how DAR can support your efforts.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ashley Renstrom-Schaefer, associate director of donor and alumni relations. Please visit the Event Planning Guide linked above to see the timeline for planning an event and requesting support.
