Join the Mac donor community!

We are 90% of the way to our goal of 12,000 donors - which we need to hit by the end of the day tomorrow. 


By the numbers we need only 1,100 more donors to make a minimum gift of $5 in order to reach our goal. And what happens when 1,100 members of the Mac community donate? Their donations - of $5 or more - transforms into over $50,000 unlocked from the Board of Trustees. 


Together as a community we can maximize our impact and raise funds that demonstrate our commitment to the mission and vision of Macalester College. As an alumni, staff, family, and parent community we can do so much to support the lives of our students and invest in their bright futures.
