Make your donation today
Empire True is a special group of supporters who demonstrate their commitment and loyalty to the University by making a gift on an annual basis.
WHAT'S IN A NAME? YOU!
At Empire State University we believe that our longstanding donors are at the cornerstone of our success. Membership in Empire True signifies you are part of a special community of donors dedicated to shaping the future of SUNY Empire. These faithful alumni, employees and friends of the University provide consistent funding for student scholarship, faculty support and so much more. They help to ensure that our students achieve their goal of becoming a SUNY Empire graduate.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
Make a gift of any amount to any area of the University for three consecutive years and after your third year of consecutive giving you are automatically a member of Empire True. To maintain your membership and reach milestone levels, simply make a gift every year without interruption. Worried about forgetting to make your gift each year and losing your membership?
Commit to a monthly gift and that’s one less thing you’ll have to remember!
HOW AM I RECOGNIZED AS A MEMBER?
As a token of our gratitude for the commitment Empire True members make, you will receive:
- Special recognition at select alumni events
- A gift recognizing your commitment at milestone year five
- Commemorative lapel pin at milestone year 10
WHY DOES LOYALTY MATTER?
By establishing a personal tradition of giving annually to SUNY Empire you will help the University provide support for a quality, accessible and affordable education to all students.
In the words of one recent graduate, "Your generous contribution toward my education is humbling and unequivocally the most amazing thing to happen to me this year! I hope that my career allows me to provide support to others in the way that you have for me."
