This December, the Colgate community is coming together to support the Colgate Fund — a resource that backs the bold ambitions of the Third-Century Plan.

Gifts to the Colgate Fund will advance the Colgate Commitment, an initiative in access and affordability that reduces or completely removes tuition for qualifying students based on family income.

Now is the moment to invest in Colgate and its students. December 10–31, 2021, generous alumni and families will match gifts to the Colgate Fund, doubling the difference you make.

Together, we can expand access to the distinctive Colgate experience and secure our University’s position among leading national institutions of higher education.
