What do your Kalamazoo College Fund contributions support?

The Kalamazoo College Fund covers three core areas, and you may direct your gift to support the initiative you are most passionate about.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

The College is committed to giving a life-changing liberal arts education to exceptional students, regardless of their financial means. Your support goes towards helping K attract a diverse student body—98% of whom receive some need-based or merit aid.

Faculty Excellence and Resources

Our faculty serve—both in and out of the classroom—as teachers, motivators and mentors to countless K students and alumni. With the assistance of generous donors like you, the College is able to better attract, retain and support faculty who continue to shape their students and further research in their respective fields.

K’s Highest Priorities

Once on campus, the College wants to ensure that students have the resources and opportunities to make the most of their K-Plan. By making a gift to K’s Highest Priorities, you will help fund exceptional student programming and a strong, vibrant campus community.
