From the moment they step foot on campus, our students set out on a journey to discover who they are and find their place in the world. Every day they soar higher, fostered by a culture of giving back to the College and the scholarship programs that have supported generations of Soaring Eagles.

There are many opportunities to benefit EC students and the College in meaningful ways. The Office of Institutional Advancement works with donors to find the opportunity that matches their desires and supports the programs and initiatives that benefit our campus and students.

Ways to Give

"The most important thing is to ensure Elmira College continues to impact the lives of students – the same as it did for me."

Students talk on campus

Special events like Giving Tuesday and Elmira Everlasting have seen record success thanks to your support. Because of this generosity, we can help our students with merit scholarships and other financial assistance, all while preparing future generations with the knowledge and critical thinking skills needed for success in today’s world.

“EC continues to lead with spirit, comradery, and feeling like you have a friend. … There is something special about this place and you want to give back to that. You want to make sure this school is open in 10 or 20 years, because a lot of schools aren't. It's important that people give back.”
–  Cheryl Shallish ‘71
