Help Golden Eagles Soar

The School of Arts and Sciences prepares students for lifelong achievement by providing an enriching education and opportunities for experiential learning. Not all students have the resources to participate fully in these activities.

Please join us by making a gift of any size to help keep a Brockport education within reach of all students. Together, we can establish a community that supports and creates opportunities for students to thrive in a world that is at once ever changing and interconnected.

Our Priorities

  • Scholarship Support: Scholarships make Brockport education affordable for students and families. Since 1999, the estimated cost has increased by nearly 135% for an in-state undergraduate student. By growing scholarships, the College can recruit more students and ensure that they persist through their education.
  • Experiential Learning: Hands-on learning, especially outside of the classroom, enable students to develop professional skills, foster professional relationships, clarify career interests, and enhance employment prospects. It often comes with additional costs. Gifts from our community encourage students to participate in opportunities that prepare them for post-Brockport success.
  • Academic Innovation & Enrichment: Public funding for higher education continues to decrease. The need to invest in cutting-edge technology and to upgrade facilities that enhances the Brockport experience is growing. Private support is vital to funding unique department needs, programs, and initiatives.
  • The Golden Eagle Opportunity Fund: This fund provides emergency grants to our most vulnerable students to meet needs not met through traditional forms of student aid. It helps students pay their rent, utility bills, purchase food, gain access to technology for on-line instruction, cover medical expenses, transportation costs, and overcome other unforeseen financial challenges to continue their education. To date, the fund has awarded over 520 grants to students totaling nearly $200,000.
