Benefactors

Yeshiva University benefactors, donors with lifetime cumulative gifts over a million dollars, enable the University to pursue larger initiatives and respond promptly to new opportunities. Many benefactors also serve in leadership roles at Yeshiva University. With the utmost gratitude we thank them for the multifaceted role they play in ensuring our University's success.  (List current as of February 2019)
