    In the spirit of Ritt Kellogg, Colorado College ’90, the Ritt Kellogg Memorial Fund helps Colorado College students promote imagination, challenge and personal growth in their own responsible and conscientious pursuit of wilderness expeditions and education. The purpose of the Fund is to support adventure and outdoor education through wilderness expedition grants, training and environmental service and wilderness-related resources for Tutt Library. The Fund additionally supports the Ritt Kellogg Climbing Wall. The Fund is available only to students currently enrolled at Colorado College.

    Since its inauguration in 1995, the Ritt Kellogg Memorial Fund has provided 432 students with expedition funding; resulting in 212 successful expeditions and countless life-changing experiences for Colorado College students.
