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 mid-November to mid-January.  

I want to encourage all members of the NYU family to consider making a gift. In doing so, you will be recognizing many wonderful organizations who play such important roles in this very special community that NYU calls home.

— President Andy Hamilton

Every Dollar Makes a Difference
