Supporters rally for Reed, breaking previous record.

The Reed College Annual Fund has closed the books on a record-breaking year. In 2017-18, through many astonishing acts of generosity that would make the Doyle Owl beam with pride, a total of 5,354 alumni, parents, students, and friends gave a whopping $4.9 million to support the Annual Fund, surpassing last year’s record.

The Annual Fund sustains students on every step of their path through Reed. The college awarded more than $27 million in financial aid to 55% of its students over the past year. Annual Fund gifts supported the peer-tutoring program, the Multicultural Resource Center, the Hauser Library, and practically everything else at Reed.

Thank you for supporting Reed’s intellectual, ambitious, and diverse community of scholars.
