About

Will you be a superhero for Utica College students today? 

At Utica College, it doesn’t take superpowers to change a student’s life. It happens every day when professors, coaches, advisers, staff members, and generous supporters help students turn their dreams into reality.

Will you make a gift to support students today? Your contribution will provide financial aid, academic resources, and more that can help Utica College students reach new heights on the path to success.

Every gift helps us reach our goal of 500 donors by noon on April 29.

Be a UC Superhero

Please make a gift (of any size!) AND tell us about your UC superhero on social media using the hashtag #UCSuperheroes. On April 28-29, 2021, we’ll share and repost our favorite stories (along with more superhero fun) to UC’s social media. Click the "Advocate" tab above to see how easy it is. Take it one step further and become a SUPER Advocate - check out utica.edu/superheroes for images and content to share.  

UC faculty and staff can make a gift of $5 or more through a one-time or ongoing payroll deduction. To do so, visit the UC Employee Deduction Form

Support What Matters to YOU

By selecting a designation, you can choose to support one of the following areas of the College: 

The Annual Fund supports UC's most urgent priorities, including institutional financial aid; academic and career preparation resources; diversity, equity, and inclusion programming; safety and technology upgrades; and much more. Gifts to the Annual Fund can be spent as they come in, which allows the College to be flexible and responsive to students’ needs.

The Pioneer Persistence Fund provides one-time financial assistance to undergraduate students experiencing unforeseen financial hardships – including but not limited to medical or family emergencies, food insecurities, or unanticipated educational costs (books, lab supplies, appropriate attire or travel/accommodations for a job interview, etc.).

Thank you!
