Your gift matters - every gift makes a difference. Scholarships and technology are the number one priority for the college. Your participation is so important. No matter what amount, your gift will change lives. Through the Alfred State Annual Fund, you can restrict your gift to the scholarship, club or sport, etc. of your choice. Or you can allocate your gift for general unrestricted support, where it will be used for critical needs such as scholarships and technology. Every dollar raised ultimately bolsters the solid foundation of academic excellence and success that the college is know for. Support our most precious resource - our students!

The Office of Institutional Advancement works to strengthen mutually beneficial corporate and foundation relationships for the college. They focus on financing special projects while supporting education, research, and scholarships through a proactive process of identifying, initiating, and managing relationships. Its staff takes an outside-in approach that recognizes the needs and priorities of corporations and foundations and aligns them with the strengths of Alfred State.
Endowments can be established for student scholarships, faculty chairs, and academic programs. An endowment fund preserves capital, offers long-term growth, keeps pace with or exceeds inflation, and can offer significant tax advantages to the donor. An endowment can be named for the donor or in honor/memorial of the person or persons of the donor's choice. Endowments can be created at a minimum gift level of $10,000. Learn about the scholarships we offer. Annual scholarships can also be established and funded each year by a donor awarded using the criteria established by the donor.
Non-cash charitable contributions, also called "gifts-in-kind," are items and products donated for the use of Alfred State and its students. Donated items require approval of the Office of Institutional Advancement before they are accepted.
All gift-in-kind donors must complete a gift-in-kind donation form (pdf) and submit it to the Office of Institutional Advancement for proper recording and acknowledgement.

Thank you in advance for considering this opportunity to join us in supporting our students and our future!
We are grateful that our students choose Alfred State. Our students receive an exceptional academic experience. However, their experience and life-long lessons can go from exceptional to life-changing with your help to the Alfred State Pioneer Parent Fund.
The parent fund provides support for students, classes, and organizations interested in participating in national competitions such as Baja SAE competition, Basic Utility Vehicle (BUV), robotics, Fireball Run, culinary arts, construction, and more. It is all hands-on, and our students learn to be innovative, creative, and apply skills readily so that they can “Hit the Ground Running!”
The parent fund directly supports new student-led initiatives that help provide our students with the civic and leadership skills they need to continue our college’s commitment to making the world a better place helping save newborn babies in Honduras, hosting Veteran's Appreciation Day to thank our veterans, or participating in the Celebrate Allegany Day of Service.
