Giving Tuesday 2022

Give the gift of opportunity.

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of kindness to transform communities and the world. Help us continue to make an impact. 

Your support is essential and appreciated. The Paul Smith’s College Annual Fund provides important financial aid for students in many ways, each contributing to a well-rounded education. Brooke Wilson, a hotel, resort, & tourism management major, was able to attend PSC to pursue her passion in business and hospitality thanks in part to several scholarships she received.

“I received the Women in Leadership scholarship, as well as a scholarship from being a part of the Emerging Leaders program,” stated Brooke. “I have an amazing baseline of experience from all the opportunities I’ve had while at PSC. I am currently completing an internship with the New York State Tourism Industry Association, of which PSC is a partner, and it has been educational and inspiring, giving me a lot of perspective on the various opportunities the hospitality industry can offer.”


John Thompson, a sport management major and student-athlete, reflects on the internship opportunity provided to him through Paul Smith’s partnership with USA Nordic.

“The school’s partnership with USA Nordic provided me with the opportunity to get real-world experience with high profile events in a sport I love. The internship gave me a huge boost of confidence and has opened new doors for me in the world of Olympic sport.

Their story is our story.

Resourceful, adventurous, and resilient, Brooke, John, and other students continue to lean in, advocating on issues that will improve their communities and the world around them. It is through the support of our entire Smitty family that we can continue to connect students to the education and opportunities that PSC provides, advancing the goal of building and strengthening community, and what it means to be a part of one.

Will you be one of over 400 donors who will help us?

Help give students like Brooke and John the experiences that only Paul Smith’s College can provide, educating future leaders in sustainability and more. 

A total of 375 alumni and friends donated just under $120,000 last year. That surpassed our initial goal by almost 40%! For 2022, we have a goal of raising $140,000 and we are humbly asking for your support.

“The network, the opportunities, and the small school feel were exactly what I was looking for. The small size also makes it feel like a family; everyone knows everyone on campus and coming back every semester really does feel like coming home.”

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of faculty and staff at Paul Smith’s College.”
