Golisano gives $5 million to college

Hartwick College has received a $5 million gift from Thomas Golisano, founder, chairman and CEO of Paychex Inc.
The funds will go toward a new academic building, to be called Golisano Hall, for the school’s social sciences and management programs. The project is slated for completion in fall 2007.
“My first interest in Hartwick was based on the appointment of Dick Miller as president,” Golisano said. “Dick and I have worked together on matters important to the Rochester community during his time at the University of Rochester and SUNY.
“I visited Hartwick last fall and was impressed with the college, its faculty, and students, as well as the Oneonta community.”
Golisano Hall will be approximately 35,000 to 40,000 square feet. The college needs to raise another $3.5 million to cover the project’s expenses.
“Tom Golisano’s generosity, which has benefited so many organizations both academic and otherwise in Western New York, sets the tone for the future at Hartwick,” said Richard Miller, Hartwick president.
“The project he is funding is central to the future success of the college. The magnitude of his gift sets a new benchmark for those whose support of Hartwick will be necessary as we advance the interests of the institution. I am thrilled for our current students and future students, and I am deeply grateful to Tom.”
