Contributing to the Thomas Commons

The generous support of Cornell alumni, friends, and parents has helped to shape Cornell as it stands today. The Thomas Commons project will enable Cornell to serve a growing student body, and allow the college to remain competitive and viable. While outright gifts, usually in the form of cash or securities, provide the most immediate and direct benefit to Cornell, some individuals may desire to make a larger commitment to the project over a period of three to five years. Each gift is deeply appreciated.
