Creating Transformational Change

The Siena College Philanthropic Society honours and perpetuates your support. Every gift, no matter how large or small, is valued and appreciated.

Each of us has different capacities and circumstances. We hope you will consider giving a gift of significance and a gift that makes you feel proud.

Donors will be listed as founders of the Society, without disclosing confidential information or individual gifts. Donors are invited to special College events, as well as the annual Siena College Philanthropic Society function, attended by the Principal and members of the College Board.

About the Society

Founded in 2014, the Siena College Philanthropic Society is an initiative specifically created to support major projects in providing excellent learning environments for the sciences, humanities, the arts, culture, sports, music and wellbeing.

While fees and grants pay for the operational costs, the Siena College Philanthropic Society assists with larger transformational projects.
