YU Annual Fund

When deciding to give a gift to Yeshiva University, consider making an unrestricted gift to the Annual Fund. Because Annual Fund donations are unrestricted, they can be applied to wherever they are needed most. In fact, the largest large percentage of the Fund goes toward academic and need-based scholarships.

Consider this:

  • Full tuition does not cover the full cost of a YU undergraduate education.
  • In fiscal year 2015, YU disbursed $46 million in scholarship aid.
  • Eighty-five percent of YU undergraduate students receive scholarship support.

The Annual Fund is a clear demonstration of the power of the many, and we especially turn to our alumni to help us with the Annual Fund. Approximately 22 percent of alumni make contributions each year to YU. We ask all our alumni to give what they can, but more than that, we ask everyone to give something every year. Taken together, those individual gifts can become a transformative donation for the University and make an immediate difference in the life of this institution and its students.
