Student Involvement

Giving Thanks

All Yeshiva University students benefit from donor generosity. Scholarship assistance, University activities, professorship chairs, buildings and speakers are donor funded and provide you with an unparalleled university experience.

Thank a Donor Week is an annual event at Yeshiva University. Organized by the team that oversees stewardship and donor recognition, the week offers students the opportunity to write thank-you cards to donors, who make it possible for so many of them to attend YU.

Seventy-five percent of YU undergraduates receive scholarship assistance, and the average scholarship award exceeds $21,000. In the 2015-2016 academic year, YU awarded more than $40 million to its undergraduates. Such support is only possible thanks to the generosity of donors who—despite challenging economic times—know well the value of a YU education and contribute to help students attend Yeshiva College and Stern College for Women, no matter his or her financial situation.

Over the year, thousands of thank-you cards have already been signed by grateful students on the Wilf and Beren campuses.
