The Campaign

Thank you for believing in Grinnell College

The future of Grinnell College — of our students, our alumni, and our global community of change makers — is more secure and well-positioned thanks to Grinnellians’ participation, engagement, and financial support throughout the Campaign for Grinnell College. 

More than 19,500 Grinnellians enthusiastically invested in students during the campaign, and every single gift enhanced the College’s ability to achieve great outcomes for current and future students. Over 4,000 Grinnellians also joined us as volunteers and we especially, and graciously, acknowledge those who played a leadership role in the Campaign for Grinnell College.

The campaign also became a catalyst for connecting alumni and donors with students and with each other and a means of reaffirming and bolstering our community. Whether you shared your time, talent, treasure, or ties, we thank you for your participation and your care for our students and the Grinnell community. 

Thank you for empowering Grinnellians to make a positive impact on the world.

Together, we are changing lives through philanthropy.

Get Involved

A never-ending pursuit of the greater good.

It’s time for all of us to reinvest, to ensure that Grinnell College’s mission thrives in the world. Join us, and we can continue to prepare students for their own lifelong journeys — living, learning, and working with meaning and purpose.

Campaign events

Serving the common good is at the core of the Grinnell College mission and drives our strong community. It is thus with great care and concern for the health and wellness of our alumni, students, parents, and friends that we announce that we cancelled all of our in-person campaign events scheduled after March 1, 2020.
