Members of the Pillar Society are Cazenovia College’s core, sustaining circle of donors. Membership generates the annual funding that is essential to assist deserving students with their needs, support faculty with adequate resources, and ensure the College’s ability to continue offering world-worthy academic programs within our unique small-school, close-knit environment.
As a new initiative built on many decades of support, The Pillar Society broadens and deepens our pool of donors comprising the College’s leadership gift community. It is built on the proud heritage and lasting legacy of the predecessor 1824 Society.
As its name suggests, The Pillar Society is an essential means to ensure the College’s year-to-year stability and sustainability for decades to come. The support your annual gift provides helps students, faculty, and the College with both day-to-day needs while ensuring there will be many more bright tomorrows for our students, faculty, and the entire Cazenovia College community.
Becoming a member of The Pillar Society
Membership increases your involvement in the life of the College and your ability to participate in charting its future.
Members receive special news and updates from the College President, curated invitations to College events, a special token of appreciation for their membership, and recognition in the fall alumni magazine.
Membership is recognized by your contribution of a gift of $1,000 or more within a fiscal year.
New this year, Young Alumni levels have been designed to help Cazenovia alumni in their early-earnings years become part of the College’s sustaining donor circle. Additional levels of support have been established, as well.
The hallmark of the Cazenovia College experience is the close, caring, connections that students, faculty, staff, and friends of the College have with one another while they attend college here, and then throughout their lives. The circle created by The Pillar Society preserves and replicates the sense of caring, support, and family that our students experience while they are here—the transformative type of education and environment that has the promise and the power of “Real Life Learning. Real Life Success.”
We sincerely thank you for your consideration and hope to count you among the supporting “pillars” who are sustaining donors for Cazenovia College and who are ensuring its stability well into the future.
