Presidential Society: $25,000 and above
Since the college’s founding in 1889, a number of visionaries have led SUNY Oneonta on its path from a small teacher’s college to a multi-purpose, comprehensive institution known for its outstanding faculty, talented students, and commitment to academics and service. The Presidential Society, SUNY Oneonta’s pinnacle annual giving society, recognizes those individuals whose generosity enables the college to continue its proud tradition of excellence.

Leadership Society
SUNY Oneonta thrives today because individuals with great passion and commitment to the college have positioned it for success. The Leadership Society recognizes those individuals who, through their gifts and commitments, provide life-changing opportunities for SUNY Oneonta students.

Loyalty Society 
Annual gifts from our loyal donors help SUNY Oneonta unite excellence in teaching, scholarship, civic engagement and stewardship to create a student-centered learning community.  The support of the college’s advocates, friends and partners helps provide our students with the full and rich liberal arts education for which SUNY Oneonta is known.

Pillars Consecutive Giving Society
In 1889, students first passed through the pillars of Old Main, a tradition that continues at SUNY Oneonta today. Pillars Society members, individuals who have made gifts for three or more consecutive years, play a critical role in supporting and preserving the traditions of our college.

Netzer Planned Giving Society
Named after the late college President Royal Netzer and his wife, Clara, this society recognizes individuals who, like the Netzers, have named the College at Oneonta Foundation in their will or estate plan. Through their thoughtful planning, members of this society create a legacy that lasts forever. Visit our gift planning page to learn more.
