Colgate's success is the product of the sustained commitment of our alumni. The 1819 Circle recognizes those alumni who invest in Colgate for three or more consecutive fiscal years.
To our inaugural members, we offer countless thanks. To those who would join them on our honor roll, we send our encouragement. Step forward, give accordingly, and take your place in the circle.
On behalf of the entire Colgate community, thanks again.
When is Colgate's fiscal year?
Colgate's fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30.
How do I qualify for membership in the 1819 Circle this fiscal year?
You can only qualify for FY15 membership if you make a gift before June 30, 2015 and have already supported the university for the past 2 years.
What if I miss a year?
Once you re-establish three consecutive years' support for Colgate, you will become a member of the 1819 Circle. By making a gift this year, you’ll be well on your way!
What are the benefits of 1819 Circle membership?
You will be recognized at Colgate events and in Colgate publications; you will receive a special 1819 Circle decal each year. Watch our site for additional benefits coming soon.
Is membership based on the amount of my gift?
A gift of any size will count towards your 1819 Circle membership. Your gift will make a difference!
Do capital and restricted gifts (support designated for particular campus initiatives) count toward membership?
Yes! All gifts to Colgate will count towards your 1819 Circle membership.
