The Colgate Fund

The Colgate Fund is a resource that is immediately spendable, meaning it empowers faculty and staff to launch innovative projects, seize opportunities, and overcome challenges.


Every time you make a gift to the Colgate Fund — whether it’s $13, $13,000, or $13 million — you enable students to access a Colgate education; you help faculty and staff to innovate; you enable world-changing academic research; you foster community; you support student-athletes, artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs; you advance diversity, equity, and inclusion — and so much more.

The Colgate Fund puts resources into the hands of the talented faculty and staff at Colgate so they can respond to challenges, seize opportunities, and provide life-changing experiences that shape the students who will become leaders and changemakers.

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.


Help Colgate Move Boldly Forward

Over the past 200 years, Colgate has continued to move boldly forward, thanks to the support of alumni, families, and friends. In April 2022, Colgate launched its Campaign for the Third Century the most significant transformation in the history of the University, and the largest capital campaign ever launched by an American liberal arts institution.

Gifts of any size to the Colgate Fund will help the University to realize the bold ambitions of its Third-Century Plan and to ensure students from all backgrounds can access a Colgate education.

We hope you'll join us. Thank you for your support.
