Why give to the Annual Fund?

Siena College Seal
Siena College Seal

There are so many reasons to give to the Annual Fund. Here are just a few:

  • You love Siena.
  • You want to give back to Siena because Siena has given so much to you.
  • You think changing the life of a student is a pretty good return on investment.
  • You know that Siena depends on Annual Fund support because endowment earnings cover only part of Siena’s yearly operating expenses.
  • You understand that alumni giving rates affect college rankings, and a higher ranking will make your Siena College degree more valuable.
  • You’re celebrating a reunion this year, and you want your class to contribute to the success of future graduates.
  • The Annual Fund provides the margin of excellence in our annual budget that allows us to provide additional programs and experiences for students!
