HOW CAN I HELP?
Many of you in our thoughtful and generous community have asked how you can help. Thank you! If you are able to do so, here are a few options:
As the needs of our students, faculty, and staff continue to grow and evolve, gifts to the Macalester Fund provide critical flexible support that can be deployed rapidly wherever it’s needed. Your Macalester Fund gift will help reimagine remote student support and programming by every department—from the Library to Health and Wellness to Career Exploration. Your gift will also help meet the rising student need for food through Open Pantry, provide support for lost student employment wages, and provide supplemental financial aid for students whose needs have increased during this crisis.
Have an opening at your organization, even for part-time work? Fill out this quick Google form and we’ll share it with students.
Show your Macalester pride—in conversations, on social media, wherever you are. Share your love for students and each other. This pride will help bring comfort and will also help prospective students see the community they will be a part of if they choose Mac. Reach out to friends and classmates through your local or class-year social media channels as well as through MacDirect, our online alumni directory.
Raise your hand to volunteer for Macalester. Alumni give back in many ways including serving as Class Agents, Reunion committees, Regional Chapter committees, Admissions Interviews, and through the Career Exploration Center. If you are interested in volunteering complete this volunteer form.
