Did Alma make a positive difference in your life, or the life of someone you love?

Giving to Alma College looks different for everyone. Whether it’s through regular annual giving, volunteering as an Ambassador, or something else, we’d like to make it a positive and joyful experience for you - because giving back should feel good!

Annual Fund

Each time you give to the Annual Fund, you provide essential support throughout the college. Gifts to the Academic Excellence Fund support the heart of the college - learning. Gifts to the Scot Athletics Fund enhance the student experience for our athletes. Scot Scholarship Fund gifts go directly to student financial aid packages, making an Alma College education affordable to students who might not otherwise be able to become a Scot. And gifts to the Alma Fund provide the college with flexible, immediate-use resources.

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.

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.

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. As alumni, parents, and friends of the institution, we share a common bond - a desire to advance Alma’s missions and to support our students. The Alma Ambassador Program enables you to tailor your volunteerism to your interests and time.
