TAG Day Image
TAG Day
SUNY Potsdam celebrated its first-ever Thank A Giver "TAG" Day this fall.  Faculty and students took the time to write thank you messages to the many donors who generously give to students and programs on campus. 
You can transform a life...elevate a program...secure a future.

As the oldest unit in SUNY, as the home of music education in the United States and as an extraordinary liberal arts college, Potsdam enjoys a clear legacy. To continue to be a leader, the College must increase its efforts to secure this legacy for future generations.

All current gifts (even Reunion class gifts and Phone-a-thon gifts) are counted in the Take the Lead Campaign, and you can support the program of your choice. Or, make a gift to the Annual Fund for Potsdam to support the Colleges greatest needs and opportunities.

Learn more about current funding priorities that will help ensure that each student's experience is transformational!
