Annual Giving

Utica College relies on annual gifts of all sizes each year from our generous alumni, families, and friends. These gifts provide essential, reliable, and significant support for all manner of College operations.

Whether its academic and student support, student aid, or athletics, an annual gift to Utica College is put to use immediately in the College's mission of educates students for rewarding careers, responsible citizenship, enlightened leadership, and fulfilling lives. By giving to Utica College, you are providing the essential resources to shape the leaders of tomorrow.

A pre-set, monthly contribution a donor desires to make by automatically charging their credit card, a recurring gift provides Utica College with a dependable and continuous source of funding and making the process much simpler for the donor. Rather than making a large, one-time gift, recurring gifts allow donors to spread out lower, automatic payments throughout the year.

To make a recurring gift to Utica College, please complete the donation form at the link below, selecting the amount you would like to contribute on a monthly basis and marking it as a recurring/sustaining gift.


Membership in the Pioneer Societies give you the opportunity to participate in the life of the College at any level you prefer. You become part of an exclusive circle of supporters who play an active role in facilitating student learning and in shaping the future of the institution.
