Day of Giving March 28, 2024



Thank you to our dedicated community of alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends who came together to make a difference on campus and in the lives of our students. Throughout the day, a record $210,000 was raised in support of students – and that number is still growing!

We are profoundly grateful for everyone who made a gift and spread the word. Thank you for helping to build a brighter future for our students, for SUNY Poly, and for our region.

Student Scholarship Impact Messages

"I'm enrolled in the nursing program 1-2-1 and I am a freshman. The scholarship I have received from you means a lot and makes a big difference in my experience at SUNY Poly. I needed as much financial support as I could get because I wouldn't be able to work during year 2 and 3 because of the program. Your generous contribution is making a great difference in my education and career. I have never thought about doing the same, but you and others have inspired me to give back one day and help other students one day. Thank you for you help." - Michael P.

"Thank you very much for this support! Any help in benefiting my education is very much appreciated! I am a mechanical engineering student in his senior year and can't wait to take what I've learned over the years and apply it to the real world." - Dawson K.

"I want to thank you for the generous donation to my educational pursuits. Similarly to Julia O. Wells, I am an alumnus of Albany Memorial School of Nursing where my love for nursing, the spirit of giving, and the desire to always continue my education were fostered and allowed to blossom. I am currently in my first semester of the Family Nursing Practitioner program at SUNY Polytechnic Institute. It was a challenge and quite worrisome to find funding that would allow me to leave my place of employment to attend college full-time. What a wonderful surprise to find out that I was selected to receive one of your gracious gifts! I am eternally grateful." - Tia W.
