What to Support

Give in support of changemakers – Grinnellians

By giving to Grinnell College, you are investing in current and future students, so they continue to thrive. By joining together, we can help prepare more students to live, learn, and work with meaning and purpose — and to do what Grinnellians have always done: Change the world.

We believe passion drives philanthropy. There are so many opportunities to connect your passion to your gift to the College. We encourage your continued engagement and ongoing support of our top campus priorities listed below.

The Pioneer Fund

The Pioneer Fund provides unrestricted gifts that benefit the College by allowing investments where funds are needed most from year to year. Learn more>>
