It is hard to ask the community to support York if we don’t believe in our work enough to invest in it ourselves. Corporations and foundations look for high levels of support from our faculty and staff when making funding decisions, as well. Therefore, your gift to the College could result in YCP receiving significantly more funding in the form of grants. Please note: York is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all gifts are tax-deductible.

York has a rich history of philanthropy that has paved the way for capital improvements, new academic and research programs, and offerings that benefit the York community. As a staff or faculty member, you are a valued part of the YCP community, and when the College benefits, the community benefits. 

By creating opportunities for flexibility and innovation not often provided by other traditional funding mechanisms, philanthropy allows York to bridge gaps in scholarship and student-experience funding, provide seed funding for innovative research, and improve operations. As a result, YCP continues to be an attractive place to work and to teach—and when we continue to attract the best faculty and staff collaborators, we all benefit.

Money given in an unrestricted fashion goes to the area of greatest need at YCP; generally, this means gifts are used to maintain existing programs on campus, as well as hire superb faculty and staff, provide updated technology, and grow the opportunities for student involvement. It has the highest impact on the most students and student programs.

Money given in a restricted fashion can be given to directly support a single program or field of study on campus. These monies can also be given to support student scholarships and athletics through Spartan Advance.

Yes! York College of Pennsylvania is a 501(c)(3) organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service. Your gift may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. Please consult your tax advisor to determine whether your contribution is deductible.

100% of gifts given to YCP are donated to the College. No percentages are given to other sources.

For each gift given to a specific sport, 25% of the gift goes to support the overall Spartan Advance, for items such as recovery tubs, fields, practice facilities, and recruitment. The other 75% goes to the donor’s choice of sport—the teams use these funds for uniforms, equipment, camps, travel and meals.

All gifts given to the Spartan Advance without the designation of a particular sport go 100% to the general Spartan Advance Fund.
