What is the Student Philanthropy Program?

The Student Philanthropy Program is a tradition that fosters philanthropic spirit among students and allows each graduating class the opportunity to leave their mark at Clarkson. It is a time when all seniors can unite in commemorating their time at Clarkson and leave behind a lasting legacy of their time spent on campus. Participation in the Student Philanthropy Program is a commitment that begins a lifetime of involvement with Clarkson – the first step in the transition from student to alumnus/a.

Where will my contribution go for the Senior Class Gift?

Clarkson has embarked on a $225 million fundraising initiative, The E2E (Evolution to Excellence) Campaign, that is energizing Clarkson through huge advances in academics, resources, and facilities. This multi-year campaign for greatness is the key to new ideas, effective answers, and unlimited possibilities; the key to creating a community that stands apart from other institutions.

As a central priority of the E2E Campaign, The Clarkson Fund delivers immediate results and enhanced possibilities for today’s students. E2E is our practical formula for forward progress at Clarkson, and The Clarkson Fund is how you can help today! 

The Senior Class Gift Campaign is an effort to raise necessary funds for The Clarkson Fund.  Seniors will be asked to give to The Clarkson Fund and become a part of the Clarkson alumni community that has a tradition of loyal alumni support. In recognition for the Class gifts to The Clarkson Fund, an incoming freshman who receives financial aid will be named “The Class Scholar.” Your contribution to The Clarkson Fund is a contribution to the E2E Campaign. This is how you help shape the future of Clarkson University.

If you would like more information about the senior gift, please contact one of the senior class officers or Eric Mount, Assistant Director of the Clarkson Fund. You can also make your gift online today!

Student Philanthropy Council

The purpose of the Student Philanthropy Council is to have a group of student representatives to help with educating the student body about what it means to be philanthropic. They will also be charged with educating their peers about the importance of the E2E Campaign, The Clarkson Fund and the significance of alumni giving back to Clarkson.

The council is co-advised by the Assistant Director of the Clarkson Fund and the Director of Student Life and Engagement. It is comprised of a diverse group of fourteen students, including two students and the class presidents from each class (freshmen through senior), one Clarkson School representative and one graduate student. With the exception of the Class Presidents, the students are nominated by the faculty and staff, based on the qualities of leadership, organization, loyalty, creativity and a demonstrated pride for Clarkson.

The Student Philanthropy Council is charged with developing and organizing two week-long events per academic year. In the fall, they will aid in the organization of Spirit Week, which is meant to inspire affiliation and pride for the institution as a whole. In the spring, they will help with the development of a Philanthropy Week, which will incorporate educational opportunities including Tuition Freedom Day, Thank a Donor Day and Thank the Faculty Day, as well as many other events. This week will also involve collaboration with the Alumni Office and Student Life. In addition to the duties required of the council, members will also be available to participate in other philanthropy related events on campus, and serve as general ambassadors of the University.

For additional information, contact Eric Mount, Assistant Director of The Clarkson Fund.
