Coming Soon! April 10 - 11, 2019

It’s year five for Scarlet & Give Back Day! Please mark your calendars for a new 36-hour challenge starting Wednesday, April 10 at  5 a.m. thru 5 p.m. April 11!

Since its inception, Scarlet & Give Back Day has inspired more than 11,000 donors to support the Grinnell College community with gifts totaling nearly $3.5 million! In just four short years, this day has become instrumental in building pride and creating a sense of unity among everyone who provides much-needed support for the programs and opportunities Grinnell provides students every day.

With help from alumni, parents, students, and faculty/staff we will make this year’s Scarlet & Give Back Day another resounding success!

Make sure to comeback on April 10-11 to watch progress towards the giving challenge!
