The Sage Colleges offers several flexible options to make your gift in whatever manner is best for you.

Online Giving

The quickest and becoming the most preferred form of giving. Online gifts are credited immediately and begin to work faster than any other form of payment.

Make Your Gift



The most widely used form of making a gift to Sage. Checks may be mailed to:

Office of Annual Giving
The Sage Colleges
65 1st Street
Troy, NY 12180



A wonderful way to make an increased gift, avoid capital gains, and receive a tax benefit. Highly appreciated securities offer alumnae/i an easy way to make a larger gift than one may think possible.

Credit Cards

MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express are most welcome forms of giving. Donors may make one gift or several monthly charges to make a special total gift.


Make your pledge now, indicating you’d like to make installment payments throughout the fiscal year (ends June 30) and we’ll mail you pledge reminders.

Corporate Matching

Many employers match, and often multiply gifts to education made by active and retired employees and their spouses. For more information, please contact your employer’s benefits office or check our corporate matching database to see if your company matches gifts. Matching gifts are included as part of your total Annual Fund gift for Charter Society membership.

Planned Gifts

As part of Sage’s Centennial, it is our hope to welcome 100 new Sage Ring members. Legacy gift commitments made during the The Sage Colleges’ 2016 Centennial Campaign (2011-2017) will count toward the goal of 100 new Sage Ring members.

Family Foundation Gifts

Many individuals have access to family foundations through which they make gifts to Sage. While the Foundation is the legal donor, the individual responsible for the gift will also receive credit for the gift.

Private/Corporate Foundation Gifts

The Office of Government & Foundation Relations is responsible for cultivating relationships with, and soliciting funds from public and private foundations, and government officials and organizations in support of the institution’s priorities.
