Equipment and Research Endowments Donation

A Difference You Can Make

Endowments and gifts that fund top-quality equipment are of critical importance to our students. Endowments enable students to pursue their passions in the classroom and beyond; the opportunity to learn with new and improved equipment simplifies this pursuit. Designate your gift to support student learning and research, or fund equipment directly to benefit students today and in the future.

Pat and Carolyn Tucker Fisheries and Wildlife Equipment Endowment

The Tucker Family Endowment in Wildlife Management Research Technology memorializes the importance and value of wildlife, handed down from a father to a son. The family hunted, fished, and enjoyed the forests, rivers, and fields in upstate NY. These experiences with wildlife resonated with their son, a 1979 SUNY Cobleskill graduate with a 30+ year career in wildlife management. Given their son's exposure to field technology at SUNY Cobleskill and the rapid advancements in wildlife management that have occurred in the last 40 years, the Tucker Family Endowment is established to assist the Department and students by providing current technology for applied science in fish and wildlife research. This endowment is designed to provide instructors and/or students with up-to-date technological equipment, analytics, etc... It may also provide access or exposure to off-site technology at other organizations.

Applied, student-centered management research is the hallmark of the educational mission of the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Environmental Science at SUNY Cobleskill. Future wildlife leaders who are exposed to, understand, and encourage the use of modern, ever-changing technology are critical to ensuring the well-being of healthy and diverse wildlife populations with an expanding human population.
