    Class Agents are alumnae/i who wish to further support Russell Sage College by representing their graduating class and undertaking vital fundraising efforts. Class Agents champion the cause for The Sage Fund for Excellence by reaching out to their classmates to encourage communication, engagement and support.

    2nd Century Scholars

    Our newest initiative to invest in student success. Your gift of $2,000 (or more) will provide an expendable scholarship for a particular student who shares an affinity with you. Choose one designation, (program or general) and we will match you with a student you can support and encourage in their academic journey.

    Russell Sage College depends on two primary sources of income in order to operate:

    Tuition Revenue and Philanthropic Contributions

    While some donors may restrict their gifts into endowed funds, contributions to The Sage Fund for Excellence, Sage’s Annual Fund, are essential because they immediately impact Sage’s ability to serve its students every year.

    The Sage Fund for Excellence supports:

    • Scholarships and Financial Aid
    • Curriculum Development
    • Faculty Resources
    • Student Enrichment Programs
    • Technological Resources
    • Campus Renovations
    • Innovative Academic Programs
    • Low Student-to-Faculty Ratio

    Your annual gift to The Sage Fund provides vital support for current and future students. Alumni participation, at any level, is taken into consideration by the U.S. News and World Report when ranking colleges nationally. Alumni participation is also a key factor in gaining corporate and government grant funding to support unique college initiatives.
