Grant Application Process

As part of the "Philanthropy and Civil Society" course, taught during each spring semester at Binghamton, students receive an overview of philanthropy, nonprofit organizations and their role in civic life. They also explore their personal values, identify the issues about which they care most and learn about community needs. All of this knowledge informs their grantmaking decisions.

As a result of this process, students make grants annually to local organizations generally averaging between $2,000-$5,000. 

The grant deadline occurs early in each spring semester. If you have questions about the process, please contact David Campbell at
