CUNY proudly announces the successful completion of its first university-wide philanthropic campaign.

$3.1 billion raised by the colleges of CUNY!

The “Invest in CUNY, Invest in New York” campaign was launched as the most ambitious comprehensive campaign ever undertaken by a public, urban university in the United States.

  • This historic campaign, driven by the individual colleges, received an overwhelming response from alumni, friends, institutional supporters, 24 college foundations and 535 volunteer board members.
  • “Invest in CUNY” proceeds have enhanced student support and scholarships, endowed professorships and faculty recruitment, innovative programs and University-wide initiatives.
  • Current annual philanthropy to CUNY colleges includes more than 50,000 gifts and $250 million, five times the annual support received prior to the campaign.

CUNY campuses across the city have been transformed by this unprecedented generosity. CUNY pays tribute to these donors as their support continue to propel the colleges in their efforts to provide educational excellence to students across the five boroughs.
