Each year, SUNY Cobleskill receives hundreds of donations that go towards enhancing scholarships, academic programs and experiences. Together, with your support, we are able to make a huge difference in the lives of our students.
Ways to Give
This year we challenge you to donate $100 in honor of SUNY Cobleskill’s Centennial Celebration. For state and campus employees, it’s easy. Through payroll deduction, a gift of $3.85 from each of the 26 pay periods, will result in a $100 gift to SUNY Cobleskill. Only a little donation from each paycheck can make a big difference in the long run. More info here.
Many companies value social responsibility and are more than happy to help when you are interested in making a donation. More likely than not, a company will be willing to match a percent of or an entire donation to the foundation that you are donating to. So if you donate $50, the total donation to SUNY Cobleskill could be $100! Check with your company to see if they support gift matching here.
What year did you graduate from SUNY Cobleskill? If you’ve never donated before – think of your graduation year as a way to donate! You graduated in 1986? Donate $19.86! We call this the class challenge and it’s an excellent way for donors to figure out how much money they would like to contribute.
Where to Give
When you go online to make a donation, there are many donation options for where to place your gift. There are scholarships tailored to every major. We offer over 175 scholarships to our students so each student has an opportunity to receive one and donors have many options on where to fund.
The Academic Trips Fund is beneficial for students who would like to attend conferences, professional training sessions, or listen to guest speakers that can give them out-of-the-classroom opportunities to further their experience in their current field for future careers.
One of our most recent scholarships is the Nicholas Failla Memorial Ag Eng Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is in memory of Nick Failla, who was a very involved SUNY Cobleskill student that passed away in 2014.
Not only can you donate to students, but you can also donate to help improve facilities on campus. At the moment, we are raising funds for the Grosvenor Gallery, the Library, the campus Conservatory, and many more.
If you are unsure of where to donate, the Annual Fund is an overall fund where the money goes towards enhancing academic programs and student development.
Through the generosity of alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the college – SUNY Cobleskill is able to have over 175 scholarships dedicated to enhancing student’s academic success and program opportunities. Each donation, no matter the size, makes a difference in bettering experiences at SUNY Cobleskill.
A huge thank you to all of those who have donated to SUNY Cobleskill in the past and those who plan on doing so in the future – every donation is greatly appreciated.
