Ways To Give

The Cortland Fund

Small gifts, when added together, grow powerful. They become scholarships, research grants, cultural arts programs and so much more. Every dollar contributed to the annual fund helps ensure academic excellence and enhances the scope, breadth and quality of the SUNY Cortland experience.

Major Gifts

Becoming a major gift donor signifies your commitment to the mission of the College. Whether endowing a scholarship, naming a space on campus or establishing a department program fund, your philanthropy provides a significant impact, which is felt throughout the campus community.

President's Circle Gifts

Your annual participation as a member of the President's Circle strengthens the College’s ability to grow and remain competitive — enhancing the institution and the value of a SUNY Cortland degree. This distinction honors those who make an annual gift of $1,000 or more.

Planned Giving

With planned giving, you can achieve your philanthropic goals while meeting your, and your family’s, lifestyle needs. Options include gifts of cash, stocks and estates. 

Naming Opportunities

The program offers donors the opportunity to attach a name to a designated facility or space, or to a non-physical asset, such as a school, department, faculty position or scholarship.
