Presidents' Club Impact Report
For five decades, Presidents' Club members have made an immeasurable impact on the university.

Presidents' Club 'Gateway
This new online community is your gateway for connecting to the Presidents’ Club community. LEARN MORE
Our leadership giving society exists to provide financial support to the university through the development of a culture of leadership-level giving by all members of the Colgate community.

The approach is to establish and sustain a culture of leadership by example, to create lifelong connectedness from matriculation on and to recognize our leadership level donors.

This spring, your Presidents' Club membership will light your torch as part of our Pass The Torch initiative. Learn more at
