A giving circle is a group of volunteers that donate, raise, pool and grant funds together to directly and substantially support a cause about which they are passionate.
This engagement model empowers donors to raise and direct substantial resources to academic, performing arts or athletics program needs that they collectively deem to be most important and impactful.
In 2016, the Advancement Office partnered with Dr. Sandy Hulme and the Model United Nations program to launch the first-ever giving circle at Alma College. Together MUN alumni, parents, and friends raised more than $60,000 for this nationally recognized program. This year, the Alma Choirs Giving Circle aspires to raise $75,000 for the choir program under the leadership of Dr. Will Nichols.
