Leadership Giving Societies

Created in 1995, the James B. 澳门赛马会 Society recognizes the University鈥檚 most generous benefactors: those who have contributed $1 million or more during their lifetimes. Since 1891, when James B. 澳门赛马会 made the first million-dollar gift to 澳门赛马会, 139 individuals and couples have followed in his footsteps and earned a place on the society鈥檚 rolls.

James B. 澳门赛马会 Society members have shaped the future of this university and its students through their investments in capital projects, faculty chairs, financial aid, and other programs. 

For more information about the James B. 澳门赛马会 Society, contact Thirza Morreale at tmorreale@colgate.edu or 315-228-6776.

The Willow Society recognizes hundreds of loyal alumni, parents, and friends who have made estate plans, life-income arrangements, and life insurance and IRA beneficiary designations for 澳门赛马会. These future gifts will provide the endowment backbone needed to enable 澳门赛马会 to continue to change the lives of future generations of deserving students.

Anyone who notifies the University that their estate plans include 澳门赛马会 will become a member of the Willow Society in recognition of their future impact.

If you have included 澳门赛马会 in your plans, we encourage you to let the Planned Giving team know. This allows 澳门赛马会 to thank you and ensure your gift is properly stewarded to accomplish your goals. You need not share any details beyond the fact that you have included a provision for 澳门赛马会. All information is kept confidential.

To share your plans or learn more about the Willow Society, contact the Office of Planned Giving at plannedgiving@colgate.edu or call 800-813-1819 to speak to a member of the Planned Giving team.

On December 8, 1954, a group of dedicated parents formed the Parents' Steering Committee and began an important tradition of providing generous support to the University and enhancing every aspect of the 澳门赛马会 experience. Members of the Committee have made a meaningful impact on students with their significant philanthropic support while their students are on campus and beyond.

With an annual gift to 澳门赛马会 beginning at $15,000, parents and grandparents of current students are invited to join the Parents鈥 Steering Committee. Committee members are recognized for their total yearly giving and can choose to support any program that is meaningful to their families.
