Since 1963, Kingsborough has gone from humble beginnings in Brooklyn to a top-four ranking among community colleges nationwide, and much of the college's success has been due to the enduring generosity of its donors. Whether they are faculty or retirees, alumni or administrators, corporate partners or distinguished friends, our donors have funded student scholarships, supported faculty innovation, strengthened our ties to the greater community, and laid a strong foundation for Kingsborough's future. Without the support of donors, Kingsborough would not be the outstanding institution it is today, as it is their contributions that have fueled our efforts every step of the way. "The 1963 Society" recognizes donors who make an annual leadership-level gift at one of the giving society levels. Membership in the giving society allows you to play an important role in the financial well-being of Kingsborough and to make a powerful statement about your commitment to our mission of providing an affordable, high-quality, transformational education to its students. Society members enjoy a number of benefits, including invitations to members-only events and special college communications. For all giving society levels, membership is determined by gifts in a fiscal year, which is from July 1 to June 30.
