Donor Impact

We're building the institution everyone wants to be like.

Brick by brick, gift by gift, we are creating a stellar experience for Doane students. 

A new residence hall is taking shape that plans to welcome students this winter. One hundred percent of the incoming fall class in 2022 received a scholarship or need-based grant. Our students continue to pursue undergraduate research and experiential learning opportunities, smash school and national athletic records and compete and perform nationally with our fine and performing arts programs.

All of this isn’t possible without your generous support. And we hope you’ll continue your journey with Doane as we move into the next 150 years. We’re grateful to have your support.


The difference your gift makes.
