We're Building Something Special
"Knox has always stood for hard work, engagement with the wider world, and enduring relationships. Today, we're giving those values fresh relevance. I'm personally asking 1,000 more donors this year to stand with Knox and support our mission by giving to the Knox Fund. At this pivotal moment, we can do astonishing things if we work together. "
—President Teresa Amott
Times are changing; liberal arts colleges need to change with them; Knox is leading the way. We recently completed a stunning renovation of Alumni Hall. Our student body is exceptionally global, diverse, and engaged. Our approach to experiential learning is a model of integrated, high-impact education.
The Knox Fund turns our momentum into a transformative moment. Your annual gift to the Knox Fund supports bright, promising students with financial need; ambitious, talented faculty pursuing important research and scholarship; and smart, strategic new initiatives. With your support, we go further, faster.
Your voice counts—right now, more than ever. If 8,743 donors (1,000 more than last year!) make a gift to Knox by June 30, Chuck Smith '84 will give an extra $100,000. Support the 1K #forKnox Challenge today.
Your gift to the Knox Fund does transformative work, every day.
Expand the number of opportunities we offer to students, from study abroad to internships, from service to research. Contribute toward building an exceptionally engaged, hands-on undergraduate education.
Keep Knox accessible to people from all walks of life. Help us enroll an intellectual community that's as bright and bold and polyphonic as the world itself. That's the kind of student body that makes us a model of relevant, real-world liberal arts education.
Nurture innovative, talented teachers, researchers, and artists. Allow them to develop new work, explore new teaching methods, and collaborate with colleagues across campus and around the world.
