About

As we come together, on campus and beyond, we are reunited in the spirit of all that binds us, under the new leadership of our seventeenth President, Dr. Suzanne M. Rivera. Our mission is the same as it was almost 150 years ago but we’re looking to find new ways of lifting up our shared values, new ways of seeing the future before us.

As Macalester marks this exciting time, we invite you to join the celebration by making a gift in honor of what lies ahead for our college and our community. The support of our community brings our future to life by lifting up our shared vision of what Macalester is, has been, and can be.

As Macalester marks this exciting time, we invite you to join the celebration by making a gift in honor of what lies ahead for our college and our community. The support of our community brings our future to life by lifting up our shared vision of what Macalester is, has been, and can be. 

The giving opportunities closest to President Rivera’s heart are:

The Minnesota Opportunity Scholarship Fund, an endowed scholarship fund to benefit students of color from the State of Minnesota who are from racial groups most underrepresented in higher education.

The Macalester Fund, which provides broad, annual, and essential support for everyone in the Macalester community. Gifts go to work immediately, and the fund provides crucial flexibility to the college’s budget. You can choose the designation to which your Macalester Fund gift is directed:

  • Financial Aid: Support Macalester’s extraordinary commitment to financial aid, which allows us to provide students of all economic backgrounds access to a Macalester education.
  • Program Support: Provide students with opportunities for growth outside the classroom – from arts performances to career development workshops to maker lessons in the Idea Lab – that make the Macalester experience special.
  • Faculty Support: Sustain the incredible education that is one of the cornerstones of Macalester’s mission, including student-faculty research, curricular development, and the flexibility to pilot new projects and academic initiatives.
  • Athletics: Help Macalester student-athletes build toward excellence with expanded efforts to support the whole athlete through nutrition and counseling services, student athlete leadership development, expanded recruitment, and more.
  • Student Emergency Aid: Support Macalester students experiencing unanticipated financial hardships related to technology and academic supply needs, emergency travel, medical expenses, and more. These funds are administered through Macalester’s Emergency Aid Program.
  • Racial Equity Support: Support Macalester’s work toward a more just and equitable campus and world. These funds are granted to projects through an application process open to students, faculty, and staff members.
  • Support It All: Support everything you love about Macalester and allow Macalester to continue to strive toward living our values and educating tomorrow’s leaders.
