Since 1813, alumni and friends of Colby have supported the College with gifts that enrich the academic experiences and lives of Colby students.


Colby Fund

Tuition and fees only cover 76 percent of the income necessary for the College to provide one of the best liberal arts educations available. Gifts made to the Colby Fund help close the gap.


Capital Gifts

Capital gifts enable alumni and friends to make a permanent difference in the lives of Colby students year after year.

A planned gift to Colby is an excellent way to honor Colby’s tradition of excellence while leaving a legacy that will improve the lives of future students.


Museum of Art

Gifts to the Colby College Museum of Art support educational programming and exhibitions.


Your time and talent can be valuable gifts for current Colby students, your fellow alumni, and others.

Reports and Recognition

Because gifts to Colby are vital to the Colby community, we strive to inform and thank donors through accurate reports and sincere recognition. Donors who make significant annual gifts are honored with a place in the 1813 Society, and the Colby Legacy Society recognizes those who have remembered Colby in their estate plans.
