Triple your dollars!

President Sexton is joining the 1831 Fund effort! For every dollar you give, he will direct a dollar-for-dollar match to the 1831 Fund. Additionally, Trustee H. Dale Hemmerdinger is directing a dollar-for-dollar match. When you combine their generosity with your gift of $18.31, you triple your impact by creating a combined donation of $54.93 in student scholarships!

Hello There!

We are excited to start a new year for the 1831 Fund with a new class! The Class of 2013 raised over $13,000. How ‘bout it? Do you think YOU can beat it?

The 1831 Fund creates scholarships for incoming freshmen and transfer students. With a contribution of $18.31 in recognition of NYU's founding year, you will make a difference in the life of a fellow NYU student by helping to create much-needed scholarships. This year’s 1831 Fund recipients received over $140,000 in combined scholarship funds.

  2. You’ll build a community of giving at NYU by showing you care about the classmates that follow you – your future fellow alumni!
  3. By participating in giving, you impact the University’s ranking and therefore, increase the value of the degree you are working so hard to earn.
