Philanthropy in Action

Grounds for Change (GFC) is Allegheny’s volunteer and student-run coffeehouse. Located in the Campus Center, GFC provides a space for socializing, studying, intellectual discussion and debate, and community and campus events. Under the leadership of a 15-member board, GFC supports environmentally sustainable practices including purchasing organic, fair trade, and locally grown and produced products. We hope that future alumnae leaders are “percolating” among the GFC volunteers!
