  • The Yeshiva University Annual Fund

    The YU Annual Fund is the University’s lifeblood, providing unrestricted support for its ongoing operation. It’s a critical element that helps maintain undergraduate and graduate programs and scholarships, hundreds of student clubs, career development, community engagement, and support for our faculty. The Annual Fund also gives University administrators the resources to respond to unanticipated opportunities and challenges.

    Introducing YU Chai

    YU Chai is a program aimed at encouraging contributions of $1800 and above. Eighteen hundred people making new or increased gifts of $1800 would grow the Annual Fund by more than $3 million a year. What a difference that would make!

    These unrestricted gifts to Yeshiva will be recognized in a YU Chai Honor Roll, and donors will be invited to special events throughout the year and receive tokens of appreciation from the University.

    The YU Chai $1 Million Matching Fund

    An anonymous donor has generously committed $1 million to match any new or increased gift to the Annual Fund with additional incentives for contributions of $1800 and above. Take advantage of this phenomenal opportunity to leverage your support by joining us now.

    A special $180 bonus match will be given to recent graduates of Yeshiva College, Stern College for Women and the Sy Syms School of Business who make their first gift to the Annual Fund.

    To become part of this important initiative, please contact YUChai@yu.edu or call the Office of Annual Giving at 646.592.4490.
