Support Nazareth

Council Oak Leadership Society

A Society for Today's Visionaries

The College's founders, five visionary women who understood the need for better access to higher education, turned dreams into reality for thousands of students by placing a college degree within reach. In honor of those early leaders and all who followed, Nazareth invites you to become a member of the Council Oak Leadership Society, recognizing, as our founders did, the impact today's support will have on tomorrow's scholars. With a gift of $1,000 or more to the Nazareth Fund, your support will go to where the need is greatest: adding student scholarships, attracting qualified faculty, enhancing curriculum, improving library services, keeping pace with technology, and upgrading campus facilities.

Benefiting College and Community

Your gifts will span generations and impact our priorities: add student scholarships, attract qualified faculty, enhance curriculum, improve library services, keep pace with technology, and upgrade campus facilities. In addition, you earn a place at select campus events, receive recognition both on campus and in our publications, and are kept up-to-date on milestones and plans at the College.

Here are some of the ways your support helps our students:
