Just as this is a values-led campaign, so is our ask to you: invest in your values so your values can serve others. For this campaign to be successful, it will require resources of all kinds from across our entire community. We invite you to give in ways that are most meaningful to you.

Colby Fund

Gifts to the Colby Fund are put to use in real time to accelerate the pace of progress on our key initiatives and to show the impact of our collective efforts. Giving through the 1813 Society, Parents Fund, Friends of Athletics, Friends of Art, and other special areas of the Colby Fund, all support this important campaign priority. Colby strives to make it as easy as possible for donors to make contributions through credit cards, checks, gifts of securities, and other means.

Capital and Endowment Gifts

These gifts enable alumni and friends to make a permanent difference in the lives of Colby students year after year. Gifts such as endowed funds for financial aid or internships bring Colby’s campaign values to life through the initiatives they make possible. To learn more, please contact our advancement team.

Gift Planning

A planned gift to Colby is one of the most flexible and meaningful ways that you can support future generations of Colby students. Giving through your estate plan or a gift that provides lifetime income can have significant tax benefits while also providing for Colby and your family. Joining the Willows Society, those who have made a planned gift to Colby, is as easy as designating Colby as a beneficiary of your will, trust, retirement plan, or insurance policy. You do not have to be wealthy to express your loyalty, confidence, and support by remembering Colby in your estate plan. Willows Society commitments made during the campaign will sustain Colby’s momentum far into the future.
