Invest in CUNY, Invest in New York
Since 1848, New York City has had a public university that offers access and academic excellence. Now CUNY’s 24 schools educate close to half a million students annually. Supplementing city and state funds, private philanthropy has enormous impact and importance in ensuring the delivery of a world-class education to all. Every gift has transformative potential.
