The Alma College ALMA FUND has always been the lifeblood of the College, supporting the critical annual needs and costs of running a busy campus while ensuring the College’s strong progress and development. The College’s greatest need continues to be the scholarships and financial aid that Alma students and their families rely on through the ALMA FUND. The 2010–11 ALMA FUND Drive directly supports the College’s current operating budget of $55.8 million; the average student award for 99% of our students, based on both need and merit, is $23,085 against a cost of $36,280.
The ALMA FUND assists in various ways on campus but is predominantly for student scholarship aid, helping us to attract the best and brightest students. It also allows us to direct gifts where they are needed most on campus. You can also designate:
- Memorial gifts and In-Honor gifts to assist our students or for designated uses on campus to honor special people in the year; or
- Gifts for various areas of campus or academic departments to assist current budget.
