I am married to another Colgate alumnus. How do we join the Presidents’ Club?
As a Colgate couple, you may join the Presidents’ Club by making a joint gift to Colgate at the Presidents’ Club level for your class. If you are in different classes, you may select the Presidents’ Club level based on the more recent class year. For example: If one of you is in the Class of 2009 and the other 2010, then your combined gift must meet the threshold for the Class of 2010.
I recently made a Presidents’ Club level gift. Why am I receiving an appeal for support now?
Colgate’s fiscal year runs from July 1 — June 30. We contact alumni early in the fiscal year, as many members appreciate the opportunity to divide their Presidents’ Club gift by enrolling in the monthly giving option. As long as you renew your Presidents’ Club gift by June 30, you will retain your Presidents’ Club membership.
What does my gift support?
You can designate your support to any activity, sport, academic area, or initiative at Colgate that is meaningful to you. Colgate’s top fundraising priority is The Colgate Fund, which provides support where needs are greatest, including financial aid.
