Geneseo's Great Give Back


Save the date for Geneseo's Great Give Back—our annual day of giving on Wednesday, April 24, 2024! Be a part of this incredible day by paying it forward and creating opportunities for SUNY Geneseo students.

Donors open the door to a Geneseo education, facilitate diverse learning experiences, and offer financial opportunities to our talented students. Make a difference today by directing your contribution to a specific department or area close to your heart, or choose to contribute to "where needs are greatest," ensuring sustained support for Geneseo for generations.


Every contribution, regardless of size, creates a meaningful impact on a Geneseo student's journey.

Why Give Back?

  • Your support gives students access to a Geneseo education, one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to the Princeton Review College Guide.
  • Your support creates learning experiences inside and outside the classroom that build skills for success.
  • Your support helps talented students take advantage of more financial opportunities.
  • Your support creates a culture of giving and sharing—a hallmark of the Geneseo community and one that resonates through every generation.

Where should I designate my gift?

  • Make a designation that's meaningful to you! Some inspiration:
    • Academic Programs, Athletics, Professors, Clubs and Organizations, Endowed Scholarships, Greek Life.
  • "Where the Need is Greatest"
    • Also known as The Fund for Geneseo, this is a flexible pool of money used to address unanticipated student needs and campus opportunities. Your gifts to The Fund allow the college to react quickly and without constraint when urgent needs arise. Learn more about The Fund for Geneseo here.
