What to Support

It is important to Grinnell that our donors get the opportunity to support the aspects of the college which speaks closely to them. This could be providing the opportunity to attend Grinnell when it wasn't financially viable. It could be proving the opportunity for students to see the world. It could also be to provide the college flexibility to provide the greatest impact for our students. Please take a moment and learn more about each of your options.
