Ways To Give

There are many ways to give to Alma College!

Every Gift Makes a Difference

The number of alumni who give annually directly affects Alma’s ranking in national publications, as well as grant distributions from foundations and corporations. Simply put, your annual gift of any amount makes a tremendous difference.

Participation Is Key

The percentage of alumni participation is based on a single counting of alumni who have made a gift of any amount, to any fund-raising effort, within a given fiscal year (July 1 to June 30). Alma College is blessed with wonderful support from alumni and friends who support a vision for Alma’s future and the promise of successful lives for new generations of alumni.

Major Gifts

Major Gifts enable Alma to make substantial changes that impact current and future students as well as the college’s long-range goals.


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.

Planned Gifts

Planned and Life Income Gifts are tools for making significant gifts to Alma College in ways that can be extremely tax advantageous for donors.

Gifts of Your Time and Talent

Giving in a personal way also is beneficial to the college.
