The Presidents' Club provides philanthropic leadership and vital support for the Colgate education and experience of today and tomorrow.
The Presidents' Club is made up of supporters who believe in the power of higher education to change the world. Through their contributions, members lead the Colgate community in establishing a culture of giving that has a profound impact on the University, faculty, and students. Members enjoy connecting with each other and with Colgate leaders at exclusive events, both on and off campus.
The Presidents’ Club’s engagement with Colgate helps ensure its continuing strength and is an integral part of its ever-increasing reach and reputation.President Brian W. Casey

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.
Colgate’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. We contact alumni early in the fiscal year, because 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.

To take advantage of this opportunity, please contact Michelle Jacobsen at 315-228-7450 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
