How You Can Contribute to the SUNY Adirondack Foundation

Annual Giving Campaign

The SUNY Adirondack Foundation conducts an Annual Giving Campaign which runs throughout the Foundation's July 1-June 30 fiscal year. This is a very important source of support for the Foundation as it funds our academic and need-based scholarships as well as the faculty and staff mini-grant program and special requests.  Contributions can be made directly to the Foundation in the form of cash, check, credit card or through bank draft. Contributions are tax deductible and, unless otherwise designated, allocated to the unrestricted use account.

Memorial Giving

Contributions are often made in the memory of a deceased friend, relative or SUNY Adirondack alumnus.  Donations can be made using the "Make a Donation" form at the bottom of this page.  Use the Comment to indicate you wishes.  Donations will go to the annual fund unless a named scholarship has been established.

Matching Gifts

The SUNY Adirondack Foundation annually receives contributions from individuals and alumni whose companies match these contributions with a gift. If your or your spouse's employer has a matching gift program, please request a matching gift form and mail the completed form to the SUNY Adirondack Foundation along with your contribution.


The Garnet Society is comprised of individuals who have made provisions in their wills leaving as a bequest to the SUNY Adirondack Foundation a specific amount of money or percentage of their estate. The Foundation staff welcomes the opportunity to help you and your advisors explore options to satisfy your philanthropic objectives and complement your financial and tax goals. A bequest is very easy to arrange, can be any amount, and donors can remain anonymous.

In the Fall of 2013, the SUNY Adirondack Foundation will host an inaugural luncheon for charter members of the Garnet Society.  Please contact the Foundation Office at (518) 743-2243 for more information.

Other Forms of Giving

There are various other ways of contributing to the SUNY Adirondack Foundation including Planned Giving, Transfers of Stocks and Securities, Charitable Remainder Trusts and Personal Property. In addition to consulting your attorney or accountant, the State University of New York's Research Foundation has developed an on-line guide, The Research Foundation's Guide to Giving, which can provide you with more detailed information about other ways to contribute. This guide can be accessed through the Research Foundation's web site: under "Giving to SUNY".
