Leading change locally and globally

Our incredible community of donors and supporters has increased access to higher education for thousands of students who might not otherwise have attended Fredonia. We encourage students to engage in research, take advantage of unique educational experiences, and expand Fredonia's positive impact in the world. 

No one "gets" a scholarship. Every student scholarship recipient earns their award through hard work and dedication to their discipline. Donors like you transform lives.

Make a one-time gift in any amount, providing flexible funding to cover essential needs.

Dedicated Community

Donors join a remarkable community of alumni and friends dedicated Fredonia's bright future!

Unrestricted Funds

Donors who make gifts without stipulating how they should be used are providing "unrestricted" funding that allows Fredonia the ability to apply them toward its immediate priorities, ranging from day to day operations to sudden emergencies, to rare opportunities.

Every Gift Matters

Just as an orchestra depends on every instrument in-tune and playing their part, Fredonia relies on donors and friends to help us continually improve the campus community for all.

Extraordinary Impact

Fredonia students engage in a wide array for creative activities, like theatre and dance

Measurable Impact

“Succeeding as a student at Fredonia is something that I have been striving to accomplish; this goal is certainly more achievable now that I have the ability to focus attentively on academics instead of worrying about paying for college. Thank you!"

Fredonia students are empowered by scholarships

Making a Difference

“I am so very grateful for receiving this scholarship. Finances are tight, and this scholarship is helping me continue my education and grow closer to becoming a History Teacher. It means more to me than you can ever imagine."

Fredonia students who earn scholarships often display increased affinity for their alma mater

Paying it Forward

“I remain humble and filled with so much gratitude for being selected as a recipient of this scholarship. I will remember this always and hope to be in a position one day to help a student like you have helped me.”
