As discussed at our 75th Reunion and in a follow-up email over the summer, we are raising money as an alumni group to fund Maroon Blazers (with the Colgate 13 Shield embroidered on the pocket) for each Thirteener who joins the group. Here are highlights of this initiative:

  • The alumni-funded maroon blazer is an extra, special jacket which supplements the Thirteen wardrobe.
  • The Maroon Blazers are presented to each new member of the group as part of the Fall Family Weekend concert.
  • The Blazers are custom made for each new Thirteener paid for by Blazers & Beyond, Inc., a 501c-3 non-profit created by Doug Wilson 1357 exclusively for the purpose of supplying these Blazers. Donations to Blazers & Beyond are tax deductible and an acknowledgement letter will be issued to each donor.
  • Doug and a small group of Thirteeners have funded the purchase of Blazers since inception which has been roughly 45 Blazers to date. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to cover blazers for the next 10 to 15 years.
  • Blazers & Beyond, Inc. is overseen by a three-person Board currently consisting of Doug Wilson 1357, Mal O’Hara 1377 and Eric Seidman 1384, all of whom are current members of the Colgate 13 Alumni Association Board of Directors. Going forward, Blazers & Beyond will continue to be managed by 3 – 5 members of the Colgate 13 Alumni Association to include the President of the Alumni Board. The Blazers & Beyond Board will be responsible for managing the donated funds and working with the current leader of The Colgate Thirteen to supply Blazers to each new member of the group.

If you prefer to pay by check, please send to: Blazers and Beyond, Inc. P.O. Box 232, Malden-on-Hudson, NY 12453

“Getting the Blazer is a defining moment in every Thirteener’s life. It marks the beginning of the journey of being in this amazing group.”
