  • Where It's Needed Most

    When deciding to give a gift to Yeshiva University, consider donating to where your gift is most needed. Our Annual Fund is one of our most important resources and a large percentage of the Fund goes toward scholarships for various students.

    Consider this:

    • It takes $20 million in endowed funds to earn just $1 million that can be used for financial aid; in contrast, contributions to the Annual Fund are 100 percent current-use
    • Tuition and fees cover less than half of what it costs the University to educate each of our undergraduate students
    • Seven of every 10 students receive $21,000 per year (on average) in scholarship support
    • Scholarship gifts made through June 30, 2010 will be matched dollar for dollar

    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.
