The Macalester Moment campaign needs you now.

We've already raised $118 million in the Macalester Moment campaign, and we need everyone’s help to reach our goals of raising $5 million for the Macalester Fund and another $1.6 million in outright gifts and pledges by May 31, 2020 to meet our campaign goals.

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.
