By donating to Clarkson College, you foster our commitment to preparing students to be the best in their chosen health care profession.  Our devotion to excellence in education began in 1888 when the Bishop Clarkson Memorial Hospital accepted its first nursing student, and your gift today will ensure current and future Clarkson College students carry on that tradition.

“Giving is not just about making a donation.  It is about making a difference.”
 -Kathy Calvin

Throughout the College’s history, no tradition has been more significant than the underlying philosophy of compassion and caring exhibited by our founders, Bishop Robert H. and Meliora Clarkson. Service plays a significant role in the history of the College, with generations of Clarkson College students answering the call to a life spent helping others.  We have several ways for you to help Clarkson College with our philanthropic priorities below.

About our Fundraising Efforts

Clarkson College has revitalized how fundraising efforts take place. Each year, the Clarkson College community steps up for our Choose to Give campaign. Scholarships, capital improvements, and a student emergency fund will be funded this year through the generous participation of our staff, faculty, board members, alumni, and community members. Indeed, the goals for 2023 are based on participation; we hope for 100% of our staff, faculty, and board members to donate.
