Giving to CUNY

CUNY is one of the country’s greatest engines of social mobility, a research powerhouse and a critical source of business and civic leadership. It provides the workforce that makes the city thrive. Your Support Helps CUNY Students Succeed.

CUNY is among the most accessible, highest quality and respected universities in the country – covering the spectrum from community colleges to graduate and professional schools. We offer incomparable opportunities to New Yorkers, particularly those from low-income families, underrepresented groups and immigrant populations. With their talent and drive, CUNY students win an exceptional number of academic honors every year, proof of what opportunity means to them and their families. One of the secrets to CUNY’s success? It has one of the most diverse student bodies in the country.

Private support is essential in helping our students complete their degrees and fulfill their dreams. It also enables CUNY to attract and retain talented faculty, launch innovative programs and provide state-of-the-art facilities and equipment.

Our 24 colleges and schools have conferred nearly 1.5 million degrees since the 1960s. In recent years, we have expanded our educational and career opportunities significantly, opening CUNY’s first new community college in the past 40 years, a graduate school of journalism, graduate schools of cinema and public health, one of the country’s most diverse medical schools, and state-of-the-art scientific research centers.

Your gift helps make these opportunities for our students possible.
