Ways to Give       
New York State funding covers approximately 20 percent of the college’s operating budget. The rest comes from tuition and support from our generous alumni, parents, faculty, staff, emeriti and friends of the college.

Annually, the Development office solicits these constituencies for unrestricted gifts to The Fund for Oswego. Unrestricted gifts allow the college the flexibility to allocate that money to where the need is greatest.
