Kenyon Together

This campaign ended on June 11, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Kenyon College by clicking here!

This challenge was created as a response to the COVID-19 crisis, which has cost Kenyon more than $7 million since March. Our annual funds are down by more than $600,000 and the College is facing a fiscal year end deadline of June 30 to make up whatever ground we can to support student scholarships, faculty salaries and resources and care for Kenyon’s campus. 

This spring, in the face of an unprecedented challenge, we watched our faculty, staff and students step up to finish the school year strong and with a great deal of innovation. We saw alumni do their part to pitch in during a global pandemic. And, though it has been difficult to keep our distance physically, we learned that even when we are apart, we are still Kenyon Together.

It is in that spirit that we launch this 36-hour online giving challenge. We are asking every member of the Kenyon family to come together and give at whatever level possible to support our students with a gift to the Kenyon Fund or Kenyon Parents Fund. Maybe in the past you’ve assumed that others are giving to Kenyon and your dollars don’t make a difference. This is the year to challenge that notion. We look forward to your help demonstrating the combined strength of Kenyon, ultimately helping us cross the finish line on budget for fiscal year 2020.

Our Kenyon Together goal is to inspire 500 gifts in 36 hours from across the Kenyon community.

Even if you’ve already given to Kenyon this year, we hope those of you in a position to do so will consider making a gift designated to one of these key areas to help us reach our Kenyon Together goals:

  • Area of Greatest Need
    Allow the College the flexibility to put your gift toward an area of need that requires the most immediate attention.
  • Student Emergency Assistance Fund
    Make an immediate impact on the lives of students faced with unexpected expenses due to the coronavirus pandemic, particularly the 91 students granted permission to remain on campus due to extenuating circumstances.
  • Black Student Union
    Earmark your gift for the BSU, established to further understanding of the ever-changing perspective of the Black student at Kenyon.
  • Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
    Give toward the ODEI, which collaborates with diverse student organizations on cultural, awareness and celebratory events such as LGBTQ+ Awareness, Women’s History, Black History, Native American Heritage, Latino Heritage and more.
  • Academic Support
    Help Kenyon continue to attract excellent professors, maintain small classes, expand research and other enrichment opportunities for students, and provide ample, up-to-date resources for laboratories and classroom.
  • Athletics and Fitness
    Support the College’s rich tradition of excellence outside of the classroom by helping to fund athletic and recreational activities that large numbers of students value and depend on-for health, personal growth, a balanced life, and leadership opportunities.
