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:
The Annual Fund Campaign
The Annual Fund is an indispensable source of annual unrestricted income that provides support for NYIT's core needs. From student scholarships to facility maintenance to faculty research, your generosity influences every aspect of NYIT. Donors who contribute $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund in a single fiscal year (Sept. 1 - Aug. 31) will recognized as members of the NYIT President's Society.
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 Bears Den
The Bears Den is an association of dedicated alumni, parents, and friends who support NYIT's 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 students and coaches, providing funding for needed equipment, facility upgrades, team trips, and academic support.
Support University Priorities Through Capital Gifts
These gifts are directed toward the 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 Through Endowed Gifts
Gifts to NYIT's endowment create a perpetual revenue source for the university. Only income generated from invested dollars can be directed toward a cause 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 generation.
Sponsor Special Events
Donations from corporate sponsors to support special events, such as fundraising galas, lecture series, or student programs, are always welcome and help defray the expenses of these activities.
Leave a Legacy With Estate Planning
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, call 516.686.7644.
Support Your Favorite Programs
From time to time, NYIT academic departments, associations, or groups organize special fundraising efforts. Examples include efforts for the Solar Decathlon, LI News Tonight program, and Patrons of the Arts. Show your support by giving to those NYIT programs that mean the most to you.
