Give for 'Gate Campaign - Colgate University Skip Navigation

Give for 'Gate Campaign

Did you know tuition only covers about 2/3 of the cost to attend Colgate? Give for ’gate recognizes the point in the semester when your tuition money ‘runs out’ and gifts from alumni and parents start to fund students' Colgate experiences.
Colgate students and their families participate in a family barbecue during Family Weekend.
Without the support of the Colgate community, many of your favorite Colgate opportunities would not be available. During Give for ’gate, you can honor the thousands of alumni and parents who have made your experience possible by making your own gift to Colgate. A gift of $13 will make you a member of the Presidents’ Club, allowing you to take part in exciting events both on and off campus throughout the year. You can easily make your gift at or through Venmo @colgateuniv.
