Pomona College Family Fellows Circle 

“Parent giving helps to keep and grow the vitality of our campus environment and student life. We are truly blessed to be able to support the College and serve Pomona in any and every way we can.

—Sheri & Rick Landgraf P’16 P’22
PLC members and Inaugural Co-chairs of the Family Fellows Circle

With a gift of $5,000 or more each year, you will partner with the College to provide resources that strengthen the close faculty relationships that provide your student—and every student—a powerful sense of identity and possibility. Resources like smaller classes across 48 major fields of study, summer undergraduate research and internships and study abroad programs in 34 countries.

“Pomona fosters a positive and supportive educational environment. Students here take the initiative to help each other because we are all one big family.”

Giving Opportunities

Your Pomona Family Fellows Circle membership will support key priorities of the Pomona student experience:

  • Faculty Excellence—to enable faculty members to advance their teaching and scholarship
  • Campus Life—to support the array of campus activities that define the Pomona student experience
  • Internships—to support student experiences that connect classroom knowledge to a world of meaningful work
