WAYS TO GIVE
Whether you are interested in making an annual gift, creating a scholarship or leaving a lasting legacy, there is a method of giving that meets your needs and interests. Below are many philanthropic opportunities that can connect you to the scholarship, program or area on campus most meaningful to you.
Empower students to grow and thrive academically, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually. A gift to the “College’s Greatest Needs” will provide flexible funds to support initiatives that serve pressing needs of the student population.
A minimum donation of $50,000 to support students in perpetuity is invested, and the proceeds are used to fund a scholarship award. The donor determines the selection criteria for the scholarship, and the endowment can be added to at any time by the donor.
CUNY is providing a 25% match on new and existing endowed scholarships that meet certain criteria. The match will be added to the principal of your scholarship endowment. Contact Daniel La Noue Daniel.Lanoue@kbcc.cuny.edu for more information.
A minimum donation of $25,000 to support students in perpetuity is invested, and the proceeds fund a graduation award. The donor determines the selection criteria for the graduation award, and the endowment can be added to at any time by the donor.
Limited-Term Scholarships funded by a minimum donation of $10,000 provide scholarship support for a specified time-period and are typically funded through a lump-sum contribution. A set amount is distributed each year until the gift is expended. The donor determines the selection criteria for the scholarship, and the money is awarded over the number of years specified. Additional gifts can be added over time to increase and/or replenish the scholarship fund.
