There is a remarkable small-sized college nestled in the middle of Iowa that’s made an outsized impact on the world: Grinnell College. For 175 years, the students, faculty and graduates of Grinnell College have shined the light on racial inequality and societal issues, found the potential in every individual and hoped for greater love for one another. To keep this legacy alive and to provide access to a Grinnell education to more deserving students, Grinnell launched its first capital campaign in more than 20 years, calling on The Thorburn Group to help tell its story and raise $175 million in support of its unrelenting pursuit of the greater good.
At Grinnell, there is an endless stamina that lives among us. A tenacious optimism, a never say never drive that believes in the ideal of doing for the greater good.
