An unrestricted fund that augments income from the University’s endowment, the Colgate Fund enables the University to support priority projects and respond immediately to innovative opportunities as they arise.
The Colgate Fund touches every aspect of the Colgate experience. Below are just a few ways that Colgate Fund supporters have helped the University rise to challenges and embrace opportunities.
Over the past 200 years, Colgate has continued to ascend, thanks to the support of alumni, parents, and friends. Through the Third-Century Plan, Colgate will become the finest undergraduate institution in the nation — the first choice for students of promise and achievement.
Your gifts to Colgate enable the ascent of this great University and its students. Thank you for your support.
These generous supporters of the Colgate Fund, with a commitment of $25,000 annually for four years, are connected to current students who are engaged in diverse academic and co-curricular opportunities. Colgate Fund Leaders generate immediate and continuous impact over four years, which they can see directly through their student’s communications.
Alumni who have graduated in the past 10 years can name a study carrel in the Case-Geyer Library by pledging five years of support for the Colgate Fund at the Presidents’ Club level—a lasting way for young alumni to demonstrate their commitment to Colgate’s current students.
