From the moment your student first stepped onto campus, Colgate became your university, too. On this web site, you will find everything you need to stay connected with our vibrant community of parents, grandparents, and alumni and how to support our Parents' and Grandparents' Fund efforts.
The Colgate experience is a family affair. Thank you for playing a vital part in your student’s achievem- ents, and for ensuring the ongoing success of this incredible university.

Parents' and Grandparents' Fund
The Colgate Parents' and Grandparents' Fund is a collection of gifts, small and large, that allows the university to exceed expectations while providing an incredible learning experience to America's brightest undergraduates.
Family Weekend

Every fall, we welcome families for a weekend-long celebration at Colgate. Family members can experience campus life by attending classes, seeing presentations, athletic games, concerts, and more.
Global Leaders
On April 13, 2007, The Kerschner Family Series Global Leaders at Colgate was launched. Today we continue to invite notable speakers to campus each year, expanding Colgate's reputation and our students' access to 21st century newsmakers.
