In addition to the Annual Giving program, several other special gift opportunities are available to alumni, parents, and friends of SUNY Canton. Please remember that regardless of designation, every gift to the College impacts our students in a positive way. We invite you to consider supporting any or all of the following opportunities:

Scholarships

SUNY Canton is committed to keeping its distinctive education affordable. Nearly 85% of Canton students demonstrate financial need and receive some form of aid. The average Canton student receives over $4,500 in financial aid assistance, with much of that coming in the form of loans or work-study opportunities. For more information, please visit our Scholarship web page.

Class Reunion Gifts

Throughout the years, reunion classes have shown their generosity by making gifts to SUNY Canton. While participation by all alumni is important, reunion classes can make a significant contribution to commemorate that special anniversary...a renewed commitment to educational excellence at SUNY Canton.

Naming Opportunities

The opportunity to place the name of an individual or corporation on a building, room, center or scholarship at a college is a time-honored tradition. The naming of facilities and academic programs recognizes an individual’s high scholarly distinction, devotion, distinguished service and a generous gift.

Any and all combinations of gifts, pledges, and irrevocable deferred gift arrangements are welcome for naming commitments. Please contact the Canton College Foundation if you have an interest in a named opportunity.

Athletic Booster Club

The SUNY Canton Athletic Booster Club has for many years been an important element in the college's quest to provide our student athletes with the very best service the college can offer.

Through various fund-raising efforts, the Athletic Booster Club provides financial support for the entire athletic program and sponsors and organizes such things as team recognition banquets, attendance promotions, special sport anniversary weekends and regional tournaments. The Booster Club also provides financial assistance for media publicity and much more.

Matching Gifts

Many alumni and friends can increase the impact of their contributions to SUNY Canton by taking advantage of a matching-gift opportunity.

Many corporations offer their employees the benefit of a matching gift program. If you or your spouse work for a matching-gift employer, you may be eligible to have all or a portion of your gifts to SUNY Canton matched.

These matching funds increase the positive impact that your contributions have on our students. To see if your employer offers a matching gift program, please consult your human resources office.

For more information on any of these programs, please contact the College Foundation Staff.
