Choose to Give

2021 Choose to Give Campaign

As a member of the Clarkson College community, we recognize the important part you play in preparing our students for their roles as a health care professionals, and we have no doubt that you share the same pride in our students and alumni as we do.

Each year, our community is asked to step up and show that CLARKSON COLLEGE CARES, through our Choose to Give campaign. Our personal donations support a special or emerging need on campus, and this fall, we are raising money to support the creation of a new Diversity Scholarship Fund and the Student Emergency Fund. For the past 20 years, the College has provided $3.5 million in scholarships to 81 minority undergraduate nursing students through our Gateway to Success Scholarship for Minority Nursing Students. We are excited to now offer a scholarship opportunity to all undergraduate minority students.  

We invite you to join our annual Choose to Give campaign and make a personal donation to support Clarkson College. The campaign will run from November 18 through December 13.
