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 30th year, provides an opportunity for the entire University to come together and address critical health, human, and environmental challenges facing communities in New York City and the larger society.

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.
