Each year I met young people who not only wanted to change the world but believed they could and have gone on to do so.

I give to Grinnell so that current and future students can have the same kind of experiences I had: small classes with dedicated teachers who inspired a love of lifelong learning. I want them to enjoy the beautiful campus, the wealth of activities, and the residential system that led to lifelong relationships.
