Make a Gift to Our Annual Fund
Each year alumni, parents, faculty and staff, foundations, corporations, and friends of Elmira College pledge their support to the Annual Fund. Donors help raise over $1 million each year for the past six years to close the gap between tuition income and the costs of providing the best educational resources to our students.
Phonathon is a vital component of the College's successful Annual Fund. Each fall, students call alumni and parents to ask for their pledges. On request, students will happily sing College songs like "Simeon Benjamin" or the "Alma Mater." During Phonathon 2010-2011, over 680 student volunteers made calls for more than 2,600 gifts and pledges, which generated over $200,000 for the Annual Fund.
