Around campus you will see a long history of philanthropy at work at Hobart and William Smith – from building and field names to honor roll lists of donors. Just as important are the hundreds of named scholarship funds that support student learning and the endowed professorships that recognize outstanding teaching and scholarship.

Naming opportunities are extensive and include scholarships, internships, capital projects, discretionary funds, athletics, speaker funds, student research and more.
