The Colgate Fund

The Colgate Fund is a dynamic resource used to address Colgate’s greatest needs and opportunities each year.

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.

In Fiscal Year 2019, alumni, parents, students, and friends gave $8.1 million to the Colgate Fund.
