The Power of Your Gifts
Every gift to Albion makes an impact—not just on the recipient, but on the donor as well.
It's evident no matter where you look. In the classrooms and labs. On the playing fields. At our annual luncheon celebrating Stockwell Society members and endowed scholarship donors (see the above video). And in the stories below. Read about those who have made a difference at Albion College and in the lives of students through their generous gifts.

Share Your Story
First, we want to say thank you.
Albion College is truly grateful for our donors' generous support and recognizes the vital role that support plays in all facets of the experience the College provides for its students.
On this page, we'd like to encourage you to share your thoughts about your gift. Perhaps, when making your gift, you wanted to describe your connection to Albion in more detail, or the factors that led to your choice to give. The form below is an opportunity to do just that—and we can't wait to hear from you!
When filling out the form, please keep these tips in mind:
- Be as brief as you can. Responses to each question should be 125 words or less.
- Be personal. This is your story. Write in the first person. Be yourself. Use language you would normally use.
- Be positive. Share your Briton pride. Talk about why you support Albion College, not why you don't support other organizations.
- Add photos. Photos make a story personal and connect with the reader. If possible, include a photo of yourself involved with the area of the College you support.
After receiving your submission, we will do our best to publish your story on our Gifts in Action page in a timely manner.
Once again, thank you!
Gifts in Action
You delivered! Every gift, no matter how large or small, starts with a story.
Just as each gift makes a difference at Albion College, so does each story behind the gift.
Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (FURSCA)
The Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (FURSCA) was established to promote and support student research, original scholarship, and creative efforts in all disciplines. Albion College's unique approach which provides one-on-one interaction with and supervision by a faculty member enhances a student's preparation for graduate school or future employment. Students may take advantage of FURSCA activities as early as their freshman year.
Gifts in support of FURSCA provide grants to purchase supplies or cover other student research related costs. Some gifts also support grants for students to travel to and present findings at discipline specific conferences.
In order to make the most of the FURSCA, we need your support. Named funding opportunities include:
- Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (FURSCA)
- Endowed FURSCA Scholar Funds
If one of the naming opportunities above interests you, we invite you to contact a member of the Development Office.
