Giving to Delhi

Giving to Delhi

Private gifts ensure that SUNY Delhi is best able to meet its mission of providing students with affordable, accessible and quality education.

Scholarships are our highest priority because the financial needs of our students are tremendous:

Pie Char of house holds with income less than 38%  <$30,000 percentage of families at 1/3 poverty level families borrow more than $20,000,000 each year

38% come from families with household incomes less than $30,000.

1/3 of financial aid applicants are living at poverty level.

Students and their families borrow more than $20,000,000 each year to finance a Delhi education.

Private gifts are also becoming increasingly important to support programs such as Freshman Seminar and Peer Tutoring that contribute to student success. That's because state support, tuition and fees cover only a portion of the actual cost of educating a Delhi student. New York State provides approximately 20 percent of the college's operating budget.

Every gift makes a difference. The College Foundation has more than 180 named funds, including the General College Endowment, General Scholarship Fund, Scholarship Endowment Fund and numerous individual funds to assist students, faculty, and academic and student life programs.

If you are considering a special gift either now or in the future, such as establishing a named scholarship, providing support for a specific academic program, creating a faculty fellowship and/or honoring your favorite professor, please contact:
