On behalf of the Albion College community, thank you for perusing the Development web page. The Development Office is committed to building relationships with alumni, parents, friends, corporations, and foundations in order to assist you in having a positive impact on the lives of our students through your private philanthropic support. Private support involves gifts and grants given by people, corporations, and foundations who are passionate about helping Albion College fulfill its mission. The members of the Development Office are here to facilitate your philanthropic goals as you assist our students in achieving their dreams.
Our students benefit from your gifts in many ways. Students receive the scholarships you fund. They study and play in buildings built and maintained with your donations. They learn from faculty who are supported by your contributions. They participate in programs expanded through your assistance.
At Albion College we are always thinking. Whether you prefer to support the College through gifts of cash, securities, real estate, personal property, life insurance, bequests, trusts, or charitable gift annuities, our job is to help you in thinking through what type of gift is most beneficial for both you and the College.
To make a gift or to begin a conversation exploring your philanthropic interests at Albion, please contact the Development Office at 517/629-0402, or via e-mail to
