Presidential Discretionary Fund

The Presidential Discretionary Fund was established in 1981 with the generous support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and private donors to Skidmore College. The Presidential Discretionary Fund (PDF) provides funding to support projects that, as determined by the President, are designed to sustain institutional vitality and self-renewal. Proposals related to faculty and curricular development are especially welcome.
