Saint Rose appreciates and honors the generosity of alumni and friends — a generosity that enables the College to fulfill its commitments to excellence in teaching and community service. There are many opportunities for alumni and friends to support the College and its faculty, students, and staff.
The Saint Rose Fund
The Saint Rose Fund provides income each year for the operating budget –a major portion of which supports student scholarships and financial aid. In addition, the Fund helps attract excellent faculty, provide technological resources and provide for a secure and attractive campus. The Reunion Challenge and The Parents Fund are administered through The Saint Rose Fund. Click here for more information.
Earnings from the College’s endowment are one of the most important sources of support for the College today. Endowment funds are invested as capital, rather than used as cash for immediate needs. Click here for more information.
Planned gifts are often referred to as deferred gifts, in that they allow the donor to defer a gift to some future date. Typically, planned gifts include bequests from wills and charitable trusts, charitable gift annuities and pooled income funds. Click here for more information.
