Several volunteer groups support the work of Purchase College. The Purchase College Affiliates support the college overall, while the Friends groups focus on support for specific schools and conservatories:
Purchase College Affiliates
The Purchase College Affiliates is a special volunteer group that brings together the interests of the community and the needs of the college. The Affiliates provide volunteer and financial support to a wide range of college programs and activities, encouraging and promoting productive and rewarding relationships between the college and its students, and the community and its citizens.
Purchase College Affilliates Grants Program
Affiliate membership fees support the only campuswide grants program that funds initiatives of students, faculty, and staff. This unique program often supports campus projects and college needs that otherwise might not be funded. The Affiliates’ grants program focuses on the college’s students and campus life. It seeks projects that will enhance the quality of student life, and the potential to benefit many students is a major criterion. Over the years, the wide range of projects funded by the Affiliate grants program has served to encourage communication and cooperative projects among students, faculty, staff, departments, and administrators.
The current maximum is $800 per grant. Applications are typically due in February; a call for applications, with the deadline and detailed information, is distributed via email early in the spring semester by the Purchase College Affiliates. Recently funded projects include:
The Purchase College Affiliates also host annual luncheons every spring and fall. The spring luncheon features a performance by the Purchase Dance Company, and the fall luncheon features a performance by the Purchase Repertory Theatre.
