Since 1847, The City College of New York (CCNY) has offered a world-class education in the heart of the most diverse city in the world. Our students, staff, and faculty work together, each day, to address the greatest issues of our time, just as generations of our alumni did when they were students at City College. The power to transform what students learn in the classroom, and apply it to communities both local and globally, is what makes CCNY such a unique institution of higher education.
We are grateful to you for your support of our institution. By giving to CCNY through the Foundation for City College, you are joining generations of donors who have ensured, through their generosity, that City College retains its place in the pantheon of vital New York City institutions.
The mission of the Foundation for City College, Inc. is to provide access to educational and research excellence, particularly to students who might not otherwise attend a senior college. Private gifts have the power to advance higher education, which transforms lives and communities and the Foundation strives to enrich the City College experience for students, faculty, and staff, and to work in collaboration with President of The City College of New York to raise significant financial support from private sources, and to steward the Foundation’s assets while serving as advocates for the College.
The Foundation supports a variety of programs at City College, including named professorships, advanced research operations, innovative programs leading to increased student success and campus-wide wellness opportunities, workforce development initiatives as well as special programs and lectures that bring some of the nation’s top intellectuals to our campus.
The vision of the Foundation for City College is to be the steward of The City College of New York through the Foundation’s position as advocates for the College’s endowment and to serve as a leader in accountability, stewardship, and overall commitment to excellence.
