Creating Our Future: The Campaign for SKIDMORE

Skidmore Fund

Give Now

Skidmore Fund

The Skidmore Fund touches every aspect of campus life and gives the College the resources to fund our most critical priorities, every day, for everyone.

Why Now?

  • Twenty percent. That’s how much more Skidmore spends on each student over and above tuition. The Skidmore Fund and endowment income make up that critical difference
  • Gifts enhance students’ educational experiences and provide support for world-class faculty
  • Alumni participation is factored into college rankings, and as Skidmore's rankings rise, so does the value of a Skidmore degree

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

How You Can Help

  • Up to $2,499 is pooled with gifts from other donors to support all aspects of a Skidmore education
  • $2,500+ provides a leadership gift and membership in the President’s Society (sliding scale for recent graduates)
  • $5,000+ funds a career-related internship, a SEE-Beyond stipend, or a named seat in the Arthur Zankel Music Center*
  • $10,000+ provides scholarship support or funds a collaborative research project for next summer*

*These examples represent just a few of the opportunities available
