Give to Macalester

COVID-19: Student Relief Fund
We have created a Macalester Student Relief Fund to help support our students with unexpected expenses right now and in the weeks ahead. This fund will help pay for student transportation, housing, distance learning, and support of Open Pantry, the student-run organization to address food insecurity at Mac.

Make a gift to the Student Relief Fund.

The Macalester Moment
In the fall of 2018, Macalester launched the public phase of The Macalester Moment fundraising campaign. Your gift today counts toward our campaign goal of pushing giving to the Macalester Fund over $5 million. Thank you for being a part of supporting access and excellence at Macalester! To learn more about the campaign goals and priorities, visit the campaign website.

Why This Matters

Each class of Macalester students comes from an extraordinary range of places and perspectives–and their journey isn’t over once they arrive on campus. From their first semester onward, they jump into life at Mac and become active, engaged, intellectually curious members of our community.  They put their education into action: by doing research, seeking out internships, and making lifelong connections with their classmates. They learn from their professors, and they learn from each other.

Those lessons don’t expire when they get their diplomas.  A Macalester education gives our talented students a toolkit to go out into the world and strengthen the community around them, from their local neighborhoods to the global stage. Each gift to the college supports every piece of that education, from student-faculty research collaborations to study abroad semesters to the scholarships that ensure access for deserving students.

Behind the scenes, your dollars support these experiences.
