The Macalester Moment campaign needs you now.

We've reached our $100 million campaign goal, but need to raise just over $2 million by May 31, 2019 to meet our immediate Macalester Fund goal and $10 million in outright gifts and pledges by May 31, 2020 to fully fund our other campaign priorities.

Students in the lab

At the heart of this campaign is delivering on what’s most important to us as a college—access and excellence, and ensuring we never have to choose between these two critical priorities. The campaign focuses on building:

  • The Macalester Fund, which supports all students and all aspects of Macalester, and allows the college to invest in new opportunities while also supporting the most fundamental elements of the liberal arts experience
  • Financial aid and scholarships, through which we maintain our deep and long-standing commitment to access
  • Faculty and academic support, including funds to attract and retain diverse and distinguished scholars, support student/faculty research, and expand course offerings
  • Program support that strengthens curriculum and learning, including career development and entrepreneurship, as well as a new theater/classroom building

Inspired by the Macalester Moments of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents, you have a role to play in the campaign’s success.
