Giving to Keuka

Now, You Can Connect with Students on a Personal Level

Dr. Marianne Jahnke, professor of biology, and Nadia Madmoune '12 observe human DNA under UV light.

Through the Adopt–a–Student Scholarship program, you may “adopt” one, or several, students who might not otherwise be able to attend Keuka due to financial need.

With a minimum contribution of $1,500 per year, you can create an annual scholarship in your name or in honor of someone special. Corporate matching funds may also be used to augment the scholarship. The financial aid office will select a deserving student.

What Makes This Program Truly Special?

You’ll have several opportunities to connect with your adopted student: through a College-sponsored event, one-on-one meetings, telephone, and e-mail.

It Goes Back to Our Original Mission

When the Rev. Dr. George Harvey Ball founded Keuka in 1890, he wanted to provide a college education to young people, regardless of financial means.

We have a history of educating students from families representing all economic strata and social experiences, providing them the tools to become community leaders who practice social responsibility.

Any student, from any circumstance, who wishes to learn, can do so at Keuka.

The Adopt-a-Student Scholarship program provides the perfect opportunity to build a rewarding relationship with a Keuka student and make a direct and positive impact on his or her life.

Thanks to your generosity, talented young men and women, who might not otherwise have the opportunity, will reap the benefits of a Keuka education.

Recurring Gifts

Recurring giving enables you to provide consistent support for Keuka College by using your credit card or bank accounts. You will not receive mail or telephone solicitations for the remainder of the year and your recurring gift will remain in effect until you notify Keuka of any changes, including new credit card information.

How Does This Help Keuka?

Recurring contributions provide the College with an ongoing, reliable source of funding. Gifts made through this program reduce our administrative costs and allow more of each gift to be used immediately to support Keuka’s top priorities. Since they cut down on paper and gas and emissions produced by mailings, recurring gifts are also “greener.”

How Does It Help You?

Enrolling in the program means you won’t have to worry about writing and sending a check. If you choose to allow deductions to continue from year to year, you will be counted among Keuka’s most loyal and valued donors and be recognized for your participation in the Honor Roll of Donors.

Recurring giving also allows you to make your yearly contribution at a leadership level, such as the President’s Circle, because your gift is divided into manageable increments. If enrollment begins after July, you may need to adjust the recurring amount to ensure that the desired giving level is achieved. The College’s fiscal year is July 1 – June 30.
