Giving to CUNY

Your Support Helps CUNY Students Succeed and Fuels the City’s Engine of Social and Economic Mobility for the 21st Century

CUNY has become among the most accessible, affordable 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 more than half of all college students in New York City attending a CUNY college, CUNY boasts one of the most diverse student bodies in the country and is New York’s leading engine of social mobility.

Private support helps our students complete their degrees and achieve their dreams. It also helps enable CUNY to attract and retain talented faculty, create innovative programs, and provide state-of-the-art facilities and equipment.

Our 24 colleges and schools have conferred nearly 1.5 million associate, baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral 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, the Macaulay Honors College, 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.
