Alma College creates a personalized journey for each student who steps foot on campus. With the help of faculty, staff, and the community, we  encourage and guide them to achieve their own definition of success in a changing world. At Alma, students explore their passions, interests, and abilities as they work toward a life of purpose, rich with opportunity.  Your gift to Alma College makes all of this possible. 


Ways to Give

Each time you make a gift to Alma, you’re investing in our students, faculty, and staff. It strengthens the experience for everyone that enters our campus for generations to come.

Make My Gift

Credit Card

Give a one-time or recurring gift to your favorite program or team. Need assistance processing your online gift? Contact the Advancement Office at (800) 291-1312 and we can assist you with the transaction. 


You can make your gift to Alma by check. Please note your gift designation in the memo line of your check. Mail to:  Alma College Advancement Office 614 W. Superior Street Alma, MI 48801 

IRA Charitable Rollover

You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as Alma College without having to pay income taxes on the money.

Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF), which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Alma College and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

Planned Gifts

One of the most powerful ways to support Alma is by creating your legacy in your will or Revocable Living Trust. As a thank you for being a part of the Alma College family, we are pleased to offer FreeWill, a free service that will help you make a legal will, plan beneficiaries and report a gift in your will or trust to our Alma alumni and friends. 

In Memory and In Honor Gifts

Giving to Alma in memory of someone who has impacted your life is a meaningful way to honor your loved one while supporting the work of our mission. Gifts in memory or tribute can be made to scholarships, the Alma Fund, academic and athletic departments, and other areas.

To make a gift via wire transfer, stock, or pledge, please call the Advancement Office at (800) 291-1312 for wire instructions.
