Giving to Fisher
Your gifts make St. John Fisher College possible for students on campus today and those to come tomorrow.
All annual gifts count toward the Fisher Fund. There are many areas of need and many ways to make gifts. Gifts support scholarships, academic research, athletics, and so much more. The Fisher Fund runs annually from June 1 through May 31.
The following are some examples of giving areas and ways to give to the Fisher Fund. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (585) 385-8023 if you have questions or would like more information.
Area of Greatest Need
A simple unrestricted (area of greatest need) gift to the Fisher Fund is applied immediately to campus priorities. Whether it is scholarships, refreshing dorm rooms, upgrading technology in the classroom, or maintaining the playing fields, every investment in the College has a direct impact for our students.
Did you know that 100% of full-time freshmen students benefit from some type of financial aid or scholarships?
Investing in the St. John Fisher College Scholarship Fund or in an existing restricted or endowed scholarship is another great way to have an immediate impact on Fisher students.
Your education means a lot to you. Your professors were amazing advisors and mentors. They and their current colleagues are guiding new students today.
If you would like to designate your gift to your favorite program or school, just make a note on the online giving form or in the memo field of your check.
Go Cardinals! Show your support for your favorite team by making your Fisher Fund gift to Athletics. Just tell us which team you support, men's or women's, and you will score a point of your own!
Designate your gift to help fund a current initiative at the College. Current initiatives may include special building projects, unique scholarship opportunities, and/or memorial funds.
Reunion Class Gifts
Show your class spirit by making a gift in honor of your reunion. Contributions designated toward your reunion class gift will go toward the project you and your classmates have chosen together. If you are interested in volunteering for your reunion, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at email@example.com.
