Student Philanthropy

York College students have the opportunity to support their fellow Spartans by beginning a philanthropic legacy before graduation. Making a gift is a great way to help mold the YCP experience for future students and leave a lasting mark on YCP.

Student giving is about more than just fundraising. It's about preserving the traditions that make a York College experience unique. Because of generous support from York College alumni and community members, generations of York College Spartans have formed meaningful relationships with their professors, gained hands-on experience in and outside of the classroom, and forged lasting friendships through their favorite clubs and organizations.

You have the opportunity to create your own York College legacy, even before graduation day. From scholarship support to funding for your academic department or athletic team, student philanthropy is a valuable gift for the future of the Spartan family. 

Opportunities for Student Philanthropists

Rock the Socks Giving Program

Students and young alumni are invited to submit their best designs for YCP-themed socks in this annual competition. The winning design is made into custom socks, which are distributed to student/young alumni donors.

Student Alumni Board

Student Alumni Board (SAB) is a group of student leaders who serve as ambassadors and help achieve increased engagement and philanthropy from alumni and students. They promote a culture of philanthropy on campus, educate peers about the importance of alumni and student giving, and aid in supporting their favorite areas of YCP. They create new traditions and foster pride throughout the campus community.


Thank a Giver Day, or TAG Day, celebrates the effect that philanthropy has on the York College community. During TAG Day, students share messages of gratitude with donors whose contributions make the YCP experience possible. Students also learn about the ways that alumni, faculty, staff, parents, friends, and fellow students have left their legacy at York College.

Make Your Gift

Student gifts make a difference in our campus community. Support an area of the College that's important to you, like an academic department or athletic team, or make a general gift that will be used to meet upcoming needs.
