Creating Our Future: The Campaign for SKIDMORE

Skidmore Fund

Give Now

Skidmore Fund

The Skidmore Fund touches every aspect of campus life, enhancing educational experiences, supporting world-class faculty and giving the College the resources to fund our most critical priorities, every day.

Why Now?

  • Twenty percent. That’s how much more it costs to educate each student above and beyond tuition. Gifts for the Fund make up that difference
  • Every gift—at every level—matters. As participation grows, so does the impact for students

Campaign Goals

  • Maintain the best possible campus facilities for academics, the arts and athletics
  • Recruit and retain exceptional faculty
  • Expand integrative-learning experiences outside the classroom
  • Increase campus sustainability
  • Provide financial aid for talented students

OUR GOAL - $50 million

Updated January 2019
