the grand society

Annual giving at the leadership level—$1,600 and above each year—is vital to the growth of the Macalester Fund.

Macalester’s commitment to access, academic excellence and programmatic innovation require Macalester Fund investment; members of the Grand Society are partners in creating a bright and accomplished future for Macalester.

If you make a new, renewed, or increased Grand Society gift before May 31 (or until the matching funds are exhausted), your gift will be matched thanks to the Grand Society Challenge matching fund established by members of the Board of Trustees.

Members at all levels will receive benefits that include periodic insider updates from the president, invitations to special Macalester events, and a gold pin to wear with pride.

If you graduated within the last decade, we’ve made it easier for you to become a member of the Grand Society. Learn how to become a member of the Young Grand Society, a tiered recognition society based on your graduation year.
