Foundation and Support
There’s something extraordinary about Purchase College.
Purchase is a collaborative, learning-centered community. We capitalize on our strong legacy and unique culture to train bold thinkers intent on making the world a better place.
Our faculty and staff provide exceptional educational experiences that uniquely coalesce professional training with a rigorous commitment to inquiry both inside and outside the classroom walls.
Our students work across and between disciplines and methodologies in ways that blur and recast traditional lines.
Our innovative and intensive curriculum has fostered generations of students intent on driving positive social change, with activism as a core value.

A Tradition of Philanthropy
The generosity of private donors provides Purchase College students with scholarships and an environment that ensures success, helps us recruit talented faculty, and fosters engagement with members of our community. Small gifts and large come together to provide need- and merit-based scholarships; strengthen our academic and cultural programs; and create a better student experience at the College.
Private gifts not only enhance the future of our students but also the cultural betterment of our community by supporting important arts education programs, exhibitions at the museum and performances at The PAC.
Your investment in Purchase will help our students dream, discover, and dare to create in ways that will transform the future.
