Philanthropy update: $414,669 in Fiscal Year 2014
Donations for need-based aid from July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014, totaled $414,669 from 1,629 donors. A regular update to these numbers will appear here at the end of every month. An update also will appear in The Grinnell Magazine.
Grinnell College needs an additional $4 million a year in net revenue from a combination of three revenue streams—philanthropy, net tuition revenue, and endowment proceeds—to continue current admission and aid policies. The College has made changes in recruitment strategies and in assessing families' resources that may help increase net tuition revenue.

The Board of Trustees in February 2013 voted to continue the policy of need-blind admission and meeting 100 percent of domestic students' financial need.
The Trustees will revisit the issue in their fall 2015 meeting. They will look at three key metrics: philanthropy, net tuition revenue, and endowment proceeds.
