Alumni, parents, and friends are invited to support The Campaign for Hartwick Students through outright gifts and multi year pledges.

Please contact Vice President for College Advancement Gregg Fort at 607-431-4026 to talk about making your commitment.

Gift pledges are formal statements of your gift intention. With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time. Each payment on your pledge is eligible for an income-tax deduction.

Endowed gifts are invested by the College to generate income in perpetuity, providing you with the opportunity to make a lasting impact. Scholarship support and J Term funds are the top endowment priorities in The Campaign for Hartwick Students. Endowments can be established with a minimum contribution of $25,000 with a Board-approved annual draw of five percent.

Cash gifts and pledge payments can be made by credit card, personal check, cashier's check, or money order made payable to Hartwick College. Please mail gift payments to College Advancement, Hartwick College, P.O. Box 4020, Oneonta, NY 13820.

Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks and bonds provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to Hartwick before they are sold. Hartwick works closely with Community Bank N.A. in Oneonta, NY to accept gifts of stock and securities and to record your gifts as quickly as possible. Please contact the Office of College Advancement at 607-431-4081.

Making a Planned Gift through your will or trust offers an excellent way to support Hartwick's mission while meeting your current financial needs. Please contact Director of Planned Giving Patricia Dopazo at 607-431-4020 or

A Gift in Recognition of someone special can be the perfect way to honor a family member, classmate, professor, or friend. This can be an invaluable way to recognize the difference that someone has made in your life or in the lives of other. Establishing an endowed fund is an especially powerful way to honor someone.

Securing a Matching Gift is a simple way to increase the impact of your philanthropy. Many companies sponsor matching gift programs to encourage their employees and Board members' philanthropy. These programs are another way to maximize your support of Hartwick.

To Make a Donation from Outside the United States: We are unable to cash checks drawn on a foreign bank. Please contact the Office of College Advancement at 607-431-4081.

Note: Hartwick College is a not-for-profit organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service and charitable gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.

Beth and I have endowed a Hartwick scholarship in the name of my parents. I, like so many of our own students, was a first generation student. My parents did not have the opportunity to go to college, but they made sure that I did. The Campaign for Hartwick Students creates opportunities for everyone who benefitted from the generosity of others to give back. That is what I feel we are doing through our endowed scholarship fund at Hartwick. I often ask our alumni and many College friends, ‘Who helped you?’ Someone helped each one of us reach our goals and define our dreams. Now it’s our turn.
