Blessed to be a blessing
At Calvin, you don’t have to wait until graduation to conduct cutting edge research, have your poetry published or counsel troubled teens. As an undergraduate, you have opportunities to flourish in mind, soul and spirit. Consider cultivating the habit of financial giving during college as well, no matter how much you can give.
Community Care Fund
You’re invited to invest in your friends, neighbors and classmates. Contributions to the Community Care Fund cover the unexpected expenses incurred by students facing family or medical emergencies. Your gift ensures that in times of crisis funds will be immediately available for students in need.
Calvin offers a wide range of opportunities that can’t be made possible by tuition alone. Thanks to donor support, no Calvin student pays the full cost of their education. Thanking a donor means expressing gratitude to those who help make the Calvin experience possible.
Senior giving campaign
Every year, graduating seniors make an impact on Calvin’s future through a senior giving campaign. For 2014, eight different designations give seniors a chance to invest in the areas of Calvin that helped shaped their experience on campus. This donation, whether big or small, continues Calvin’s longstanding tradition of alumni who give back.
Student Philanthropy Council
The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) exists to educate Calvin peers about the purpose and importance of giving. Providing guidance on projects like Giving Week and the the senior giving campaign, the council gives students a chance to connect with other campus leaders and engage fellow students in philanthropic events.
