1. Participation matters most
Give whatever amount is meaningful to you (many of us are giving $20.15). 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. 45% = $5,000!
Once our class hits 45 percent participation, a generous alum will donate an additional $5,000 to K!
A $20.15 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
Last year, 154 faculty and staff members gave over $50,000 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 $20.15 buys one pair of lab goggles, forceps, a three-ring binder, and 1-liter Erlenmeyer flask.
