Support our Programs

VIP was created to improve the lives of young adults with disabilities. The generosity of parents, friends, local corporations, and foundations has had a profound impact on our program and our ability to make dreams of independence a reality.  If you are interested in making a gift to support the VIP program, please contact NYIT’s Office of Development at 516.686.7644.

Gifts to the VIP program enable us to:

  • meet the increasing demands for scholarship support
  • support program enhancements, such as Smart Boards and other technology used in the classrooms
  • improve campus facilities
  • upgrade technology
  • support new program initiatives
  • provide additional training for faculty

You can direct your gift to:

  • VIP Annual Fund
    The Annual Fund raises unrestricted dollars to support areas such as scholarship, faculty development, building maintenance, and academic programs, among others.

  • Benjamin J. Cecil Scholarship Fund
    The VIP Benjamin J. Cecil Scholarship Fund provides scholarship monies for students who could not otherwise attend VIP.

  • Capital Gifts
    These gifts are raised for special projects, such as major renovations of a building or the purchase of specific equipment.

  • Named or Endowed Scholarships
    Donors to a named scholarship play a critical role in providing much needed financial assistance for students for a period of time or for a life time.

  • Sponsorships
    Donations from corporate sponsors to support special events such as Homecoming Weekend are always welcome and help defray the expenses of such events.

  • Gift Planning
    Including NYIT VIP in your estate plans may provide valuable tax benefits to you and your family. Such gifts can be made through wills, retirement plans, and charitable remainder trusts to name a few.
