When George Washington Gale and his fellow founders settled on the prairie in Western Illinois in the 1830s, they weren't just breaking ground on a new college and town—they were making an investment in the future of their community and nation. Their risk paid off, and, 180 years later, Knox and Galesburg have overcome a variety of challenges to remain vibrant communities on the prairie.
Continuing investments by individuals willing to donate their time and treasure are integral to the ongoing success of Knox and Galesburg. Meet a few individuals-Knox alumni and Galesburg community members—who are investing in the future of our college and town.
