Recognizing the 201st anniversity of the granting of the institution's first charter by the State of New York in 1819. All students, faculty, and staff are invited to visit Memorial Chapel.

We ask that you — much like our 13 founders, who each contributed $1 to start what would become this university — make a $1 gift (or more, should you so choose) in support of one of three local organizations that perform invaluable service to our campus and to the wider community: Southern Madison County Ambulance Corps (SOMAC), Hamilton Food Cupboard, and the Hamilton Volunteer Fire Department.

We began this tradition of giving back, even in the most modest way, to the community on Charter Day in 2019, during the 200th anniversary of Colgate’s founding. In addition to inviting campus community members to come to the chapel, we also encouraged all Colgate alumni, in whatever way they saw fit, to give back to their own communities on that day. We repeat the act this year, establishing a tradition that reminds us of our obligations to community and those who serve.
