Shimer College


The impact of your gift

Your support helps our students experience the collaborative inquiry, rigorous curriculum, and unconventional culture of Shimer College. We paraphrase one of our students who says our alumni, staff, faculty, and friends have created a diverse intellectual community that extends beyond our four walls. We paraphrase one of our professors who says Shimerians are able to approach any issue with intellectual boldness and humility. 

Any gift, large or small, has an impact on our community of students and their journey. From free coffee for students during the semester, buying costumes for the upcoming theatre production, or funding the Dangerous Optimists’ Scholarship so that a deserving transfer student can attend Shimer, your donation reinforces our student-centric mission.

Thank you for giving to Shimer College.
