About the CUNY Campaign

The CUNY Campaign for Voluntary Charitable Giving is a long-standing tradition in the CUNY community. It is the University's annual charitable fundraising drive which takes place throughout The City University of New York system. Now, in its 31st year, the Campaign provides an opportunity for the entire University to come together to address critical health, human, and environmental challenges facing communities in New York City and society at large.

Participating charities are vetted to ensure that they are in compliance with a State and Federal laws. Faculty and Staff can contribute to a charity(s) of their choice through a payroll deduction, a check or a credit card. Payroll deduction allows donors to conveniently select multiple charities and allocate their deduction as they wish.

Over the past 30 years, CUNY faculty and staff have contributed over $12 million to support health, human service, education and environmental charities.


Disclaimer: The University provides an array of organizations from which employees can choose to donate their funds. The inclusion of an organization in the campaign should not be seen as an endorsement of the organization by CUNY.
