Nearly 200 years ago, 13 men gathered in the Chenango Valley. With 13 dollars and 13 prayers, they launched what would become Colgate University.
Modern-day leaders continue the tradition. Many have stepped forward with significant, sustained, and transformative gifts to the university, earning membership in Colgate’s recognition societies. Collectively and individually we thank them. Generations of undergraduates — past, present, and future — owe their Colgate experiences to the vision of our leadership investors.
