The Campaign

Incredible support has produced incredible results!

Thanks to you, Grinnellians are making an even greater impact on the world.

The first Grinnell College campaign in two decades was a triumph. The response from the Grinnell community has been overwhelming and the impact of your generosity is widespread.

Thank you for believing in Grinnell College and sharing your time, talent, treasure, and ties over the last eight years. By investing in the campaign, you helped Grinnell to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion and create the opportunity for life changing programs and opportunities. Over 15,000 Grinnellians passionately invested in our students through this campaign and every single gift enhanced our ability to unlock our students’ potential.

We are looking forward to sharing more stories and data about the impact of the campaign this fall to further convey how, together, we have made Grinnell greater.

Together, we are greater.

Get Involved

A never-ending pursuit of the greater good.

Throughout this campaign, Grinnellians across the world have reinvested in our community. By attending virtual events or taking on one of many leadership roles in the Grinnell alumni community, Grinnellians have been involved and engaged with each other and the College.

We look forward to sharing news of opportunities to gather in person in 2022 to celebrate this campaign and to consider, together, how we can continue to work to strengthen the Grinnell community; to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion among our ranks, create opportunities for current and future students, and support each other as we continue to leave our mark on a world that needs Grinnellians now more than ever.
