1. Participation matters most
Give whatever amount is meaningful to you (many of us are giving $20.16). It adds up! Last year, 54 percent of KCF donors gave $100 or less.
2. Honor your favorite professor or staff member
You can make your senior gift in honor of a faculty or staff member!
3. Hitting our participation goal = $5,000!
Once our class hits our participation goal, a generous alum will donate an additional $5,000 to K! The 2016 Class Agents will announce the goal this year.
4. Your impact is immediate
A $20.16 KCF gift annually makes the same immediate impact as a $403 gift to the endowment.
5. You can choose your impact
You can direct your KCF gift to the area you care about most: Scholarships, Faculty Excellence, or K′s Greatest Needs.
6. Donors = Diversity
According to a New York Times analysis, K ranks as the 12th most economically diverse top college in the nation for enrolling a large number of low- and middle-income students. Your gift helps K enroll a more economically diverse student body.
7. K believes in itself
In 2014-2015, 174 faculty and staff members gave over $54,600 in Kalamazoo College Fund gifts to support our education!
8. Your gift supports student research
Gifts of all sizes support the research we do every day. Your gift of $20.16 buys one pair of lab goggles, forceps, a three-ring binder, and 1-liter Erlenmeyer flask.
