Countdown to 24 Hours of Giving








Give for a day, make an impact for a lifetime!

What is Giving Day?

SUNY Broome Giving Day is our annual fundraising event where our alumni, students, faculty, staff, community organizations and businesses come together to give back and celebrate our great community college. For Giving Day 2021, we raised over $250,000 from over 400 donors. Let’s keep the momentum going!

We believe that no student should have to falter on their college plans because they don’t have the resources or support to make it happen. This is where we all come in! Your gift can make a difference on this campus, can support a student scholarship, and can be the change that our students need.

Lisa Schappert, Senior Director of Development & Alumni Affairs said, “SUNY Broome’s Giving Day is one of the best days of the year! Our alumni and donors understand the importance of supporting the college and our students – we are continuously fascinated by the generosity of our SUNY Broome family.”

This Giving Day, make a gift to change a life!

Ways You Can Help

Donations empower students to complete their goals and provide financial support and educational opportunities. With increasing college costs, living expenses, and economic hardship, many cannot afford college without financial assistance.

Scholarships & Grants-In-Aid

Over 320 need-based or merit-based scholarships are awarded annually to deserving students. Because of private support, hundreds of students are recognized for their hard work and can achieve their goals with less debt.

SUNY Broome also awards many students in need with grants-in-aid, without requiring them to apply for the assistance (which is necessary to be considered for a scholarship).

Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund helps SUNY Broome students in troubling times to stay in college and move into a brighter tomorrow. The fund grants up to $500 or documented emergency expenses such as unexpected medical bills, car repairs, and more to students in need.

Faculty Development

Faculty development donations support expanded and updated professional knowledge for our faculty and staff and create resources for unique faculty and student projects.

Campus Enhancements

Our mission also includes providing the college with the funding to enhance our campus and acquire modern, up-to-date equipment, which keeps SUNY Broome at the forefront of innovation and technology.
