When you make a gift to the Kenyon Fund, you:

Reduce reliance on endowment income.

The Kenyon Fund and the Kenyon Parents Fund build a stronger college for students and professors. Annual gifts reduce reliance on endowment income. The result: greater resources for students and professors, now and in the future.

Balance the budget.

Kenyon has balanced its budget for forty-eight years in a row. At the core of this fiscal winning streak is responsibility, discipline, a commitment to keeping Kenyon strong — and also the Kenyon Fund. The Kenyon Fund and Kenyon Parents Fund play a crucial role in supporting the operating budget, every year.

Make an immediate impact on every aspect of the Kenyon experience.

Because of Kenyon Fund gifts, the extraordinary becomes customary. Great professors. Small classes. First-rate labs and seminar rooms. Magnificent public spaces. It's all quintessentially Kenyon — and it's all supported by the Kenyon Fund. Join your fellow alumni and help the College accomplish even more
