As Chair of the 2014 CUNY Campaign for Voluntary Charitable Giving, I invite you to join me in supporting your favorite charity. Each one of us can make a significant impact through a single action. That’s the “Power of One!”
In 2013 we contributed $465,000 to 500 different organizations through The CUNY Campaign. More importantly, we came together as a community to help our neighbors. Whether it’s a family that is struggling to recover from a natural disaster, a person faced with a serious medical condition, or a student who must overcome obstacles to earn her degree, your gift to The CUNY Campaign will make an impact.
As New Yorkers, we benefit in many ways by the great work of our participating charities. Did you know that many of the CUNY college foundations funded by the Campaign support campus initiatives such as student scholarship funds and child development centers? Perhaps you yourself have a child in an after-school program, enjoy the offerings of one of CUNY’s many campus arts organizations, or have adopted a pet from a shelter? The money that you and your colleagues donate will come back to benefit you, your loved ones and our community in so many ways.
And it’s so easy to give! You can contribute through a payroll deduction, by writing a check or using a credit card. I invite you to peruse our website and learn how you can make a difference by participating CUNY’s wonderful tradition of giving. On behalf of the City University and all those that The CUNY Campaign helps, thank you.
