Giving is a personal decision and our individual reasons for contributing are many. But we have at least one common purpose – to support the reason we’re all here – the students.

As faculty and staff members, we have the privilege of working closely with students. Gifts from employees are an investment in our students’ potential. As you may know, tuition and state funding do not cover the entire cost to educate a student. Private gifts help make up the difference by supporting resources and opportunities such as new technology and scholarships.

A high employee giving percentage is an endorsement by employees that the college's students are deserving of their financial investment. Faculty and staff participation also plays a major role in external rankings and the college's overall reputation; factors which influence funding by foundations and corporations.

Ultimately, your participation is a vote of confidence in Empire State College and its future. Sign up today for payroll contribution or to make a gift.
