Purchase alumni are a fiercely loyal bunch. Your achievements and adventures provide a steady stream of inspiration, excitement, and confidence to current Purchase students. They rely on you for support, whether it means providing advice, sharing job opportunities, telling stories and reminiscing, or opening doors and building professional networks.
Alumni support is vital to help the college flourish.
By getting involved with Purchase programs, you give back to your alma mater and pay it forward for the next generation of alumni. Become a volunteer, a donor, a promoter, an advocate, or any other role that works for you. Your stories will inspire current students and attract new prospects to the College; your donations will help us thrive.
Below are a few ways you can help:
Make a Gift
Help shape the future of Purchase College, its programs and students by making a gift to the College. The most common contributions are made by check, credit card, or stock. The college can also accept outright gifts of artwork, real estate, gifts-in-kind, and other assets.
