Ways to Give

Savannah Compere '20
"This scholarship has allowed me the opportunity to travel abroad to Ecuador this summer on a faculty led trip. I truly believe that being immersed in other cultures humbles a person and will only make them more skilled to interact with a wide range of people." Savannah Compere '20 - Alumni Association Scholarship


Secure and convenient, giving online is the fastest way to support SUNY Oneonta. You can make a one-time gift using your credit card, or enroll in monthly recurring giving - a convenient, automated way to sustain your giving over time.

By Check

Please make checks payable to State University of New York at Oneonta Foundation. Checks may be sent to: Division of University Advancement, Alumni Hall, 108 Ravine Parkway, Oneonta, New York 13820.

Red Dragon Sustainers

Every gift has an impact on the lives of our students. You have the power to increase that impact by establishing a monthly recurring gift and be recognized as a Red Dragon Sustainer.

Payroll Deduction

All SUNY employees can make their gift to SUNY Oneonta by having it deducted through their paycheck. To start making your gifts through payroll deduction, or to adjust the gifts that you are making through payroll deduction, by simply downloading, filling out and emailing this form to our office.

Contributing appreciated stock and mutual funds is a way to make a significant gift while saving capital gains and income taxes. You can specify either a certain number of shares or a dollar amount.

Many have discovered that a donor advised fund is a flexible and easy way to support SUNY Oneonta now and in the future. Use your donor advised fund to contribute cash, appreciated assets, or investments that have been held for a year or more with paying capital gains taxes.

Another resource to plan for your assets

Did you know you may have additional assets not covered in your will? If you have an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any additional accounts, these are called “non-probate assets” and they need to be planned for separately. Using this online tool, you can log all of your assets, name SUNY Oneonta as a beneficiary to advance our efforts, and receive printable instructions on how to set each one up with your broker.

Qualified Charitable Distributions from your IRA

If you are 70 1/2 or older, giving from your IRA helps reduce your taxable income — and for those over 73 who must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), an IRA gift is a simple way to fulfill it! We have invested in a secure IRA donation tool to make it easier than ever to give from your IRA and receive tax benefits. It only takes a few minutes to use and will help complete your paperwork for you.

Please note: When you donate from your IRA, please use the link below so we can track your gift and send you the right receipt, and you can get the tax savings you deserve.

Give from my IRA
