About the Gray Fund
Betty Gray, in establishing the Gray Fund in 1992, made the following statement:
"The purpose of this endowed fund is to assure that Reed College will have stimulating cultural, social, and recreational programs of excellent quality on a regular and planned basis which will interest students, faculty, and staff and which will involve these three groups together in activities outside the classroom which complement the college's academic program. "
Since then, the Gray Fund has brought musicians, performers, and artists to campus, while sending students, faculty, and staff members off to explore the outdoors, visit museums, and learn about Portland. The principle behind every Gray Fund event is to have fun!
Gray Fund events are free and open to all members of the Reed community, including current students and members of the faculty and staff. Family members and partners are welcome at on-campus events if space permits. Because of space limitations on the trips, participation is generally limited to Reed students, faculty, and staff.
The Gray Fund strives to ensure that its activities are accessible to all members of the community, and is proud that its "substance free" policy has become a tradition at Reed. If you are concerned about your inability to attend an event due to physical limitations, please come to or call one of the offices listed below.
Events and trips are planned by both the student activities office and the sports center. For more information about recreational trips, email the Gray Fund recreation interns at GFrecreation@reed.edu or call Will Symms in the sports center (503/777-7285 or extension 7232). For more information about other Gray Fund trips or events, call Claudia Ramirez Islas or Kristin Holmberg in the student activities office, 503/788-6692 or extension 6692.
