Support the value of a Kalamazoo College education
Gifts from alumni, parents and friends of Kalamazoo College support the aspects of Kalamazoo College that attract and retain excellent students and faculty, features like a strong, fully integrated international studies program, a student to faculty ratio of 12:1, numerous career exploration experiences with alumni and industry leaders, and opportunities for graduate level academic research and writing, as practiced in the Senior Individualized Project.
Your gift indicates the College has a strong and committed base of supporters. Many foundations and corporations consider the percentage of alumni participation in the Kalamazoo College Fund before determining their level of funding.
Bright, motivated students converge upon Kalamazoo College and they thrive amongst dedicated faculty in small classes. Armed with knowledge and professional preparation, students leave Kalamazoo College with a commitment to lifelong learning, a powerful tool that will serve them throughout their lives.
One student who benefits from your generosity can uniquely and profoundly affect the lives of thousands.
Support worthy students in their endeavors to attend Kalamazoo College
Tuition only covers 75 percent of what it actually costs to provide a Kalamazoo College education. This means that every student receives a “silent scholarship” contributed from the annual support of alumni, parents and friends of Kalamazoo College.
Over 98 percent of Kalamazoo College students receive some form of financial assistance each year. Your gift will support students in need!
