  • By Phone: Call us toll-free at 1-800-456-8278, Mon. - Fri., 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Eastern U.S. Time)
  • By Mail: Please mail your gifts to:

    Office of Advancement
    Utica College
    1600 Burrstone Road
    Utica, NY 13502

The College accepts checks from U.S. and international banks as well as American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. Tax receipts for gifts of cash, check, or credit card are issued within 48 hours of receipt.


Gifts of stock afford donors an opportunity to avoid capital gains taxes by transferring ownership of personally held stock to Utica College.  Since UC is in the business of educating students, all stock gifts are liquidated upon receipt.

Gifts of stock receive a tax-receipt that is generated usually within 24 hours of the stock sale. The value of the stock gift is based on the average of the high and low on the date of sale.


Gifts in kind are gifts of real or tangible property such as equipment, materials, company products, land or inventory. These gifts add to the value of a Utica College education by strengthening our programs and improving our facilities, so that we can provide the best possible educational experience to our students.

Past gifts in kind have included the bronze bell in Bell Hall, a 40-foot yacht, sculptures, paintings, computers, and software.


Matching gifts provide a way for donors to double their dollars and have an even greater impact on students at Utica College. Many corporations will match the gifts of current or retired employees as well as spouses of employees and people holding positions on their board of directors.

Here's how it works:

  1. Obtain a matching gift form from your employer.
  2. Complete your portion of the matching gift form.
  3. Mail your gift and the matching gift form to Utica College.

We will do the rest!

To find out if your company matches gifts, check with your human resources office or contact Kim Suriano at (315) 792-3346 or kasurian@utica.edu.

For many Utica College students, unforeseen expenses can make the difference between earning a UC degree and permanently withdrawing. The Pioneer Persistence Fund provides one-time financial assistance to undergraduate students experiencing unforeseen financial hardships – including but not limited to medical or family emergencies, food insecurities, or unanticipated educational costs (books, lab supplies, appropriate attire or travel/accommodations for a job interview, etc.)
