Nothing represents our human-powered community better than annual gifts to the Knox Fund from alumni, parents, and friends; gifts that power the College and support its students and faculty. Like endowment and capital gifts, annual gifts are integral to the future of Knox College. Annual gifts of any size are gratefully accepted and are put to immediate use supporting the Above & Beyond initiatives. In fact, every dollar given to the annual fund has the same impact as $20 in Knox's endowment.
Gifts to the Knox Fund support:
Last year, nearly $3.7 million was raised in annual gifts to the College from more than 6,000 donors. Your continued—and increased support—will ensure that our strong annual fund will take Knox Above & Beyond, enabling our faculty to teach and pursue scholarship and our students to learn in ways that the 21st century requires.
During the Phase II Above & Beyond Initiatives, donors gave $25.5 million to the Knox Fund. Another $5.9 million came to Knox through realized unrestricted bequests.
More than 6,600 alumni, faculty, staff, and friends made gifts to Knox during FY2019. Gifts to the Knox Fund totaled more than $3.7 million, while another $7.6 million went toward campus facility improvements, including the Phase I renovation of the Umbeck Science-Mathematics Center.
