Scholarships By Students, For Students

Today is the day - 1831 Fund Giving Day! We are asking the entire NYU community to band together and reach the goal of 200 donors in one day. Make your gift today and join in the excitement!


Why give back on Giving Day?

  1. All 1831 Fund donors receive early access to senior week tickets which go on sale next week.
  2. Stop by Kimmel’s lobby for hourly giveaways from great local vendors, our photo booth, and use #NYUGivesBack to win free sweets and treats.
  3. Check out our Facebook event for more information on the giveaway vendors.
  4. NYU Trustee Bill Berkley and President Sexton will both be directing a match! That means ever senior gift of $18.31 automatically becomes $54.93, tripling your impact! Also - join us tonight for a Giving Day happy hour at Thunder Jackson's from 6:30 - 8:30 pm!
