The Campaign

We’ve come a long way, together.
We can’t stop now.

When the Campaign for Grinnell began quietly in 2013, the world was a very different place.

With the unique global and societal challenges we are facing today, the College’s commitment to providing a highly individualized, world-class education to every admitted student, regardless of their ability to pay, has never been more important. The ability to create new opportunities in the age of virtual learning and social distancing are of critical importance.

Thanks to your generosity, we crossed our campaign fundraising goal a full year early. While that accomplishment is worth celebrating, the need for philanthropy has not lessened. By investing in the campaign, you are helping Grinnell increase diversity and equity, and creating the opportunity for life changing programs and opportunities.

The world needs more Grinnellians. Your investment will help make that possible. Please join us by investing in our brighter future.

Together, we are greater.

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.
