The generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends plays a critical role in the success of NYIT. There are many ways to support NYIT:
Support Current Students and Faculty: The Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is an indispensable source of annual unrestricted income that provides support for NYIT's core needs. From financial aid to facility maintenance to faculty research, your generosity influences every aspect of NYIT. Leadership giving to the Annual Fund is recognized by the President's Club, which honors donors who contribute $1,000 or more in a single fiscal year (Sept. 1 - Aug. 31).
Double Your Gift Through Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies encourage employees to make charitable contributions by matching their gifts. Ask your personnel or human resources department for a matching gift form. Note: Some companies also match spouses' gifts.
Directly Support NYIT Athletics with the Bear's Den
The Bears Den is an association of dedicated alumni, parents, and friends who support NYIT's 10 NCAA teams and general athletics program. The Bears Den is committed to providing the financial support that ensures a quality athletic and academic experience for all student athletes. All dollars raised directly support our coaches and athletes, providing funding for needed equipment, facility upgrades, team trips, and academic support.
Support University Priorities: Capital Gifts
These gifts often are directed toward support of special projects, such as construction, renovation, or expansion of buildings, faculty support, or specific programs. Capital gifts may lead to recognition opportunities that honor or memorialize a particular person or family.
Invest in NYIT's Future: Endowed Gifts
Gifts to NYIT's endowment create a perpetual revenue source for the college. Only income generated from invested dollars can be directed toward a purpose selected by the donor or in accordance with NYIT's endowment spending rules. Establishing an endowed scholarship is a terrific way to support talented NYIT students and have your name remembered for eternity.
Become Involved in Special Events: Sponsorships
Donations from corporate sponsors to support special events, such as fund-raising galas, lecture series, or student programs, are always welcome and help defray the expenses of such activities.
Leave a Legacy: Estate Planning Gifts
Including NYIT in your estate plans may provide valuable tax benefits to you and your family. Such gifts can be made through wills, retirement plans, life insurance, and trusts. For more information, visit our planned giving pages.
Support Your Favorite Program Through Special Appeals
From time to time, specific schools, associations, or groups will organize a special fundraising effort for a specific purpose. Examples include efforts for the Solar Decathlon, LI News Tonight program, and Patrons of the Arts.
