Our Purpose

The development office works to secure financial commitments to Calvin College that will enable it to sustain its mission. We seek to build and maintain relationships with alumni, friends, faculty and staff, corporations and foundations that will result in gifts which help meet the college's current and long-term stated needs.


We best acknowledge your generous contributions by making sure your gifts are used as intended. Please contact us if you would like an audited financial statement or a copy of the most recent annual report, or if you have specific questions about your past gifts.
