Steinhardt Annual Fund Achieves Goal: $1 Million+

With generous gifts from the Dean’s Council, alumni, parents, and friends, the Steinhardt School raised $1,059,466 for its Annual Fund during the 2008-09 academic year. This marks the first time that the Steinhardt Annual Fund has broken the $1 million mark, placing Steinhardt in an elite group of NYU schools that includes Arts & Science, Dentistry, Law, Medicine, Stern, and Tisch.

Annual Fund gifts support Steinhardt’s greatest needs: maintaining facilities, providing scholarships, and supporting faculty research and public service activities in schools, hospitals, and community centers in NYC and beyond. This year, the Fund was particularly strengthened by the creation of a Dean’s Emergency Fund, which provides dedicated support for students who would otherwise leave Steinhardt because of the global economic crisis.
