Can We Count on You?
March 15, 2018
Last year, 2,764 donors raised over $800,000 in a single day to support NYU. As part of NYU One Day, alumni, students, friends, faculty, staff, and administrators joined together to inspire innovative thinking, create much-needed scholarships, and support the dreams of NYU students. This year, for NYU’s third annual University-wide day of giving on Thursday, March 22, 2018, the bar is high. The goal: 3,000 donors in just one day.
To help the university community come together, NYU’s beloved Bobcat has agreed to serve as host for the day. He’ll be prowling campus and social media to encourage support. Join Bob and NYU in this amazing effort by making a gift of any amount to any area of the University that is most meaningful to you.
From soloists, senators, and sports stars to business leaders and Broadway successes, NYU One Day makes dreams a reality for thousands of NYU students. Ready to pounce on a wonderful opportunity to help generations of NYU hopefuls? When you give, you’ll be supporting students like:
“As a first-generation college student, I didn't know what to expect,” says Cosgun. “But I have found a wonderful community here that I absolutely love.”
—Scott Cosgun (CAS ’19)
“I want my sisters to know that being a first-generation Latina woman from a low-income family does not define your future; I found support, and I'm glad I did because I am living my best life at NYU.”
—Alexis Cerezo (TSOA ’21)
“I have found a wonderful community here and abroad,” says Monisha, “I cannot say thank you enough to the donors who made it all possible.”
—Monisha Weerasundara (LS ’20)
“As a first-generation student from a low-income family, attending college in New York City was a real challenge,” says Tavius. “But with help from donors, it is now first and foremost a reality.”
—Tavius Koktavy (GAL ’19)
After you make your gift, here are some additional ways you can pump up the #VioletPride:
