Giving monthly supports Grinnell students daily

Your gift in support of Grinnell students can be just as easy as your monthly subscriptions for Amazon Prime, Hulu, or cell phone service. Monthly recurring gifts allow you to set your gift and forget about it by establishing an automatic debit to a credit/debit card or deduction from a bank account.

“I set up a recurring gift as part of my commitment to Social Justice. I want students to experience and benefit from Grinnell's education with less of a financial burden. My monthly gift is part of my way of sharing my gratitude for Grinnell and hope for the future.”

“We’re committed to making the world a better place, so we make plans to follow through. Part of our commitment looks like monthly recurring gifts to several communities and causes, including Grinnell College. Recurring gifts mean that we always know we’re keeping our commitment, no matter what else is going on.”
