Colgate was built on the generosity of our founders and has been sustained by an unwavering philanthropic tradition. Show your enthusiasm for Colgate’s past. Demonstrate your commitment to its future. Then, watch as your generosity powers our mission to be the first choice for students of promise and achievement — the finest undergraduate institution in the nation.
Colgate’s future as a leading American institution depends on its ability to attract and admit outstanding students — regardless of economic need. When it comes to expanding access for tomorrow's undergraduates, there is no time like the present.
Colgate's beauty is a point of distinction. Members of the Colgate community have a rare opportunity to help steward the university's landscape by purchasing and naming one of 200 Bicentennial trees to be planted on Colgate's upper campus in the months to come.
The Colgate Fund is an expression of loyalty, made by alumni, parents, students, and friends. It allows the university to address its most pressing needs and respond to new opportunities, underwriting a multiplicity of excellence. Every gift of any size makes a difference.
