NYU Alumni and Friends Connect

March 15, 2019

On March 28, NYU alumni, students, friends, faculty, staff, and administrators from across the globe will come together for the fourth annual NYU One Day. In 2018, more than 3,500 donors raised over $1.1 million in 24 hours to inspire innovative thinking, create much-needed scholarships, and support the dreams of NYU students. This year, we need 4,000 members of the NYU community to make a gift in support of everything that makes NYU special. Join in this amazing effort by making a gift of any amount to any area of the University that is most meaningful to you.

Last year, 53% of gifts supported scholarships and fellowships.

“It's very hard to look at all the schools you would like to go to, knowing you don't have the means, and to see your parents working really hard, but still aren't able to help you despite how much they want to. Having [a] scholarship really made it possible for me. One day I want to be able to give back what was given to me and help other students’ dreams come true,” says Maria Jose Urrutia (CAS ’22).
“It is a privilege to be the first in my family to go to college, and I couldn’t be here without scholarships. NYU covering my full tuition enables me to focus on my classes, focus on who I want to be and my experiences here. I think education is how we change the world, and I want to he part of that movement,” adds Steven Ramdilal (STEINHARDT ’19).

After you make your gift, here are some additional ways you help spread the word:

  • Host a Facebook Fundraiser in support of NYU Alumni. All donations will go toward scholarships.
  • Spread the word and encourage others to give by joining #ViralViolets, our social media ambassador program and using #NYUOneDay on your social channels.
  • Get tickets to NYU Night at the Garden to watch the New York Knicks vs. Toronto Raptors game, Thursday, March 28! A portion of your ticket purchase will go toward NYU One Day.
  • Or attend one of more than 20 events—including trivia in Toronto, a Lakers game in Los Angeles, and rock climbing in London—in support of NYU One Day taking place across the US and around the globe.
