Did you know? The Colgate Fund, previously called the unrestricted annual fund, is a crucial economic resource that supports the university’s most urgent needs and long-term strategic plans. The Colgate Fund augments income from the university’s endowment and provides Colgate with the flexibility to respond in real time to opportunities that arise during the course of the academic year.
Out of the total raised for the Colgate Fund each year, 25 percent supports financial aid and 50 percent supports academic programs. In Fiscal Year 2015, alumni, parents, students, and friends of the university contributed $6 million toward the Colgate Fund.
