The Combined Campaign raises financial support from NYU employees in order to assist hundreds of local nonprofit organizations near NYU's campuses, as well as throughout the five boroughs, through the Community Fund and the United Way of NYC. The campaign runs from November to January.  

Please consider making a gift today.  Your donation means so much to the wonderful organizations working in the neighborhoods surrounding NYU in NYC, where our students, staff, and faculty work, live, volunteer, and learn.
