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.

As of June 15, $7,425 of $200,000 has been raised.

“Grinnell College provided me with a phenomenal education that started me on my journey to success. I donate so many others like me continue to receive the same educational opportunity in the future.”

“The role that Grinnell has played in our lives is important as Grinnell is where our lives as a couple started and where we have met our most cherished friends. The ability to obtain a truly broad, socially minded education is the reason we met in the first place and the commonalities that developed during our time at Grinnell are why we remain together today.”
