The Roundtable
Imagine What We'll Do Tomorrow

The Roundtable has long been a distinguished University symbol, recognizing annual leadership donors whose contributions help forge Clarkson’s path toward excellence. Recently revitalized with new recognition, new member benefits, and new insider opportunities to learn about and influence the future of our university, The Roundtable offers rich opportunities for individuals to reconnect as they play an integral role in sustaining the University's mission in higher education.

Each year, about 91 percent of the gifts Clarkson receives comes from individuals contributing at the Roundtable level. Truly, The Roundtable is the guardian of the Clarkson degree, ensuring its value for today’s students and alumni and elevating its impact for the future. We invite you to join the rejuvenated Roundtable today by making a qualifying gift and expanding your influence as Clarkson University continues to evolve to excellence.

Tom and Lynn Kassouf

“Over the years, our conversations with alumni - as friends, acquaintances, or colleagues - consistently share a common thread: an expression of the positive difference Clarkson University has made in their lives and in our lives. Reinforcement of that high esteem by a strong donor community ensures that Clarkson will continue to have this impact upon future students. Your Roundtable participation forms the leadership core of our important donor community.”
