Keene State College has more than 30,000 living alumni – many graduates who live out the KSC motto, “Enter to learn, go forth to serve.” Keene State alumni make a positive difference in the world every day: in education, the sciences, the arts, business, industry, and may other fields. Alumni apply their knowledge and wisdom to their work, their personal lives, and their communities. They volunteer. They connect. They speak out. They step up.

The Keene State Development Office supports the College’s pursuit of excellence in education and leadership among public liberal arts institutions. The Development Office works closely with Keene State alumni, friends, partners and with faculty and staff to strengthen the College through annual and endowed gifts, encourage a culture of philanthropy, and expand Keene State’s proven ability to transform lives for the good of society. The Development Office considers today’s needs – funding for scholarships, undergraduate research, and excellence in teaching – and tomorrow’s aspirations as it works diligently for the success of the College and its students.

Keene Endowment Association

“I didn’t know it at the time,” says Scott McPherson ’92, “but Keene State would shape and define my life in ways I couldn’t imagine.” Norma Walker ’51 feels the same way. “Keene State made me what I am today.” The two alumni have been deeply involved in giving back to the College through the Keene Endowment Association, McPherson as president of the board, and Walker as the founder of a scholarship endowment.
