Student Giving

Powerful - because it shows you care

Personal  - because it reflects what you believe in. 

Promising - because you are providing hope to more people like you.

There are many ways to GIVE back to Paul Smith's College:

Student Philanthropy Council
The Student Philanthropy Council helps to raise money for Paul Smith's College.  We need your creativity and dedication to educate students on the importance of giving back.

Green Paws
Each student is provided with a green paw bank at the beginning of the year (because we are GREEN and we are the Bobcats after all).  We encourage you to save your change in your Green Paw.  All money raised will go toward the Class Gift.  EVERY gift makes a difference!    

Help us at an event, with Green Paws, Student Philanthropy or with the Class Gift.  There are many ways to volunteer on campus! 

Earth Day
Earth Day, also known as "Green Apple Day of Service" on the Paul Smith's College campus was a huge success!  Students participated in various events across campus and in the community.  If you'd like to be involved, contact Student Activities for more information.

Class Gift
Each year, the student government puts their heads together, and decides (along with other students) what they should leave behind that all students can enjoy while on campus.  The 2015 Class Gift was two kayaks for students to use.  The 2016 Class Gift was a donation to the Pathfinder Scholars Fund, which provided overall support to the College. 

Students can also "Honor My Professor".  With a gift of $10 to the Class Gift, you can recognize a professor who has made a positive impact in your life.  It's a great way to recognize someone who has made a difference AND participate in the Class Gift at the same time.
