Annual Gala

Ulster County Community College Foundation Gala invitation

The Foundation’s Annual Gala is a fundraiser and recognition event honoring outstanding individuals, organizations, businesses, and friends of SUNY Ulster. Through the generosity of our many contributors, and with the energy and vision of our leadership, the Foundation carries its mission forward for the benefit of our amazing SUNY Ulster students. 

SUNY Ulster is among the top 100 public two-year colleges in the United States with the lowest net price after grant aid and scholarships! Our donors’ gifts to scholarships and support of our fundraisers are pivotal to maintaining this designation. The Foundation increased its scholarships to $400,000 for the current academic year, and provided much needed supplemental funding for the enhancement of academic programs.

This year’s Gala will take place on Thursday, October 10th, 2019 at Diamond Mills

We will be celebrating Champions of Tomorrow Igniting Opportunity.

The 2019 honorees are Artavius “Tay” Fisher and Basch & Keegan; 2019 Your Promise ~ Their Future Awardee, John J. Wadlin; and 2019 Anne R. Donovan Awardee, Nick Haines

We hope you can join our philanthropic community and attend. It is sure to be an enjoyable and successful evening!
