Gifts That Keep On Giving

Keene State College is a preeminent public liberal arts institution, a little-known fact we think everyone should know. But we didn't get that way alone. We literally couldn't do what we do for our students without the help of our alumni, faculty, staff, friends, and neighbors.

To everyone who has given gifts or contributed time and talent as mentors, internship supervisors, community service providers, and the myriad other ways in which you all give so generously to Keene State College, we thank you!

What difference do gifts make to our students? Well, 4,453 of them receive assistance so they can attend KSC, but their needs are met only to a small degree. With virtually all needing financial assistance and 39% being first-generation college students, scholarships make it possible for bright young people to better their lives and enrich our communities.

Some gifts enable students to conduct research with professors instead of having to work multiple jobs to pay tuition. Some donors choose to fund vital projects, such as the Alumni Center, used to bring students together with employers, professionals in their chosen fields, or mentoring alumni.

Whatever you choose to support, you can be sure that your gifts are of critical importance to the college and to our students.We are committed to using our resources judiciously. To that end, we have moved our delightfully long donor lists to our website (the report lists donors who gave between July 1, 2010, and June 30, 2011). 

We hope you enjoy this new way of expressing our gratitude. You are an essential part of Keene State's success – many, many thanks!
