Giving

We hope you'll consider supporting our work at the Public Service Center. Alumni can give to the Center in a variety of ways.  We are grateful for those who have chosen to further Center programming by:

  • Establishing endowments to support current programs and initiatives
  • Giving annual gifts
  • Giving their time to advise programs, serve on committees and provide their expertise to further our initiatives.

Please consider joining the generous alumni who support the Public Service Center.

Robert Appel '53 and Helen Appel '55 and Gerald Robinson '54 and Margot Robinson '55 established the Robinson-Appel Humanitarian Award to recognize and financially support public service programs created by current Cornell students.

Others have established the Maribel Garcia Award to honor Ms. Garcia's work and memory. This fund supports the Maribel Garcia Community Spirit Award, which will be given each year to a Cornell student who has made a remarkably insightful, selfless, and/or creative contribution to their community.

Richard Boas '71 and Elisabeth Boas '71 provide funding for Into the Streets.

If you would like to implement a new program or provide funding for a current initiative, please contact our Executive Director, Leonardo Vargas-Mendez at (607) 255-1148.

Your support allows students to participate in hands-on, transformative experiences, encourages faculty to further their community based teaching and research efforts and furthers Cornell's strategic commitment to community engagement on a local, national and global level.
