You transform Grinnell
While the world operates with a calendar year, Grinnell College (like many institutions of higher education) utilizes a fiscal year. Our fiscal/academic year starts July 1 and goes to June 30.
- Make a gift online
You can make a gift via our secure, online giving site using a credit card or a bank account. It's the quickest way to make your impact on Grinnell students. You can also fulfill your pledge or increase your commitment.
- Make a pledge online
Using this form, you can arrange how much you intend to give, and how many pledge balance reminders you would like to receive from the College.
Note: A pledge merely identifies your intent to make a gift, and authorizes the College to issue reminders of this intent. By filling out a pledge form, you are under no obligation to make a gift right now.
