Annual FundA gift to the annual fund ensures SUNY Orange has the resources it needs to provide the best possible education to its students.  Gifts to the annual fund contribute towards scholarships for SUNY Orange students, necessary classroom upgrades, and the student emergency fund.   

The Student Emergency Fund provides resources for SUNY Orange students to help pay for urgent expenses triggered by unforeseen events that threaten their ability to stay in college. Sometimes students are barely making ends meet and then an unexpected expense threatens to derail their plans for a better life. Issues such as homelessness or threat of eviction; medical or dental emergencies; domestic violence; theft; and lack of transportation or child care are just some examples of the real world issues our students face every day. Investing in this fund can help a student get past that financial hurdle and get them back on the road to graduation.


Classroom Technology Upgrade Fund To provide students with the best possible education, SUNY Orange needs to make use of available technology, especially in the classroom. Many classrooms have not been upgraded since the 1970s and are in need of whiteboards and projectors. Teaching methods are now more inclusive and participative and require classroom environments that support this. Desks that are mobile, flexible and ergonomically designed will help students learn and study more effectively.
