Where Your Gifts Are Needed

  • Student support
    Great students inspire faculty and challenge fellow students.
  • Faculty support
    The caliber of an academic institution rests upon the quality of faculty, who are the lifeblood of Kalamazoo College.
  • Facilities support 
    While outstanding people make an institution, the places in which they do their work have a profound effect on their ability to be exceptional.
  • Program and department research support
    We are one of the nation’s great private institutions, with our work extending from business to social sciences.
  • Discretionary support
    Discretionary support provides tremendous flexibility for our department chairs and directors as they adapt to ever-changing needs and demands
