Why Should I Give?

Top Reasons to Make Your Senior Gift

1. You can choose your impact

You can direct your Kalamazoo College Fund gift to the area you care about most: Scholarships, Faculty Excellence, or K’s Greatest Needs. You can also designate your gift to your academic department or athletic team. Your gift will make an impact on the area(s) that mean most to you.

2. Reaching our goal = $5,000!

Once our class reaches 60 percent participation, a generous alum will donate an additional $5,000 to K scholarships. The Class of 2016 met their goal so your class could benefit from the extra $5,000; why not pay it forward for the Classes of 2018, 2019, 2020 and beyond?

3. Participation matters most

Give whatever amount is meaningful to you. Many of us are giving $20.17. It adds up! Can you give up a pizza, a coffee or an energy drink this week to make your gift?

4. Honor your favorite professor or staff member

You can make your senior gift in honor of a faculty or staff member who played an exceptional role in your Kalamazoo College experience. See a class agent or Kalamazoo College Fund staff member for details.

5. Your impact is immediate

A $20.17 KCF gift annually makes the same immediate impact as a $403 gift to the endowment.
