We're Building Something Special

"When I speak with alumni and parents, it's clear that we're all concerned about making sure a Knox education remains relevant and affordable for our students. That takes an investment in faculty, facilities, and scholarships and financial aid. You can help by giving to the Knox Fund. Together, we can accomplish astonishing things. "

—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.

Knox Fund: Giving Priorities

Your gift to the Knox Fund does transformative work, every day.

Experiential Learning

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.

Financial Aid

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.

Faculty Excellence

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.
