Your annual gifts truly make a difference in the lives of Clarke students and their ability to positively influence the world around them. Annual gifts not only provide essential operating support to Clarke, they provide a wide range of special-project funding.


“My first experience with mission work was participating in one of Clarke’s early service trips to Appalachia when I was a student. That experience – both the inspiration and rewards I received from it – touched my heart in a special way, prompting my search for further service opportunities. In fact, my first job out of college was working at a Navajo mission in New Mexico for two years. I am pleased that gifts to the Clarke Fund help continue this tradition at Clarke.”
