Student Philanthropy

York College students have the opportunity to support current and future students by beginning their philanthropic legacy before graduation. From scholarship support to funding for your academic department or athletic team, student support goes toward making York College everything it is for generations to come. Making your gift is a great way to show your gratitude, help mold the YCP experience for future students, and leave your mark on YCP!

Student philanthropy is about more than just fundraising. It's about preserving the traditions that make a York College experience unique. Because of the generous support from our alumni, current students like yourself are able to form meaningful relationships with their professors, gain hands-on experience in and out of the classroom, and forge lasting friendships in their favorite clubs and organizations.
