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 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."
—Betty Gray, 1992
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!
The Gray Fund strives to ensure that 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 ability to attend an event due to physical limitations, please come to or call one of the offices listed below.
