Strengthen Our Community

It’s not the place, but the people who make a community. Grinnellians have always embraced this idea and understand that by supporting and learning from each other, we all grow stronger. This challenge has now ended! Thank you to all our new donors for participating and to Joel Spiegel ’78 for offering this challenge.

A progress bar showing progress against a goal of $7,500. $0 is on the left and $7,500 is on the right with an empty space to be filled in by a red line. The Red Bar fills about 41% of the open area.

As of June 30, $3,100 of $7,500 has been raised.
