Types of Gifts

Make an Immediate Impact

Unrestricted Gifts

Unrestricted gifts give City College the most flexibility to invest in timely, current programming allowing our community to see immediate impact of these gifts. 

Cash Gifts and Recurring Gifts

Cash gifts can be made easily by credit card, personal check, cashier's check or money order payable to City College, Office of Development and Institutional Advancement. Donate today, using our online form or send via postal mail.

You can also set up a convenient way to be charged a particular amount at a chosen frequency to sustain your support for City College through your credit card. Please contact Husna Sheriff at hsh%65riff@ccny.cuny.edu " rel="nofollow"> hsheriff@ccny.cuny.edu  or (212) 650-8938 for additional information. 



Making a gift of appreciated securities is a great tax-efficient method of supporting City College. Donating stock to the College can help reduce or eliminate your capital gains tax. 

This secure, online tool makes it easy to learn more about the potential tax savings from donating stocks, access our transfer information, and walks you through the necessary paperwork in less than 5 minutes. Learn more and get started here.


IRA Rollover

Supporters 70.5 or older with a traditional IRA are eligible to make a potential tax-free donation to the City College from their IRAs. These gifts are tax-free, regardless of whether or not you itemize deductions on your tax return. If you are 72 years old or older, these gifts can even count towards fulfilling your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the calendar year.

You can use our secure online tool to make your tax-free donation online, print out the forms you need to complete the gift offline, or learn more about the benefits of giving from your IRA.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations and foundations have matching gift programs for their employees’ philanthropic interests. These companies might double or even triple donations made by employees or their spouses. Best of all, you will be recognized for the full amount of your gift plus any employer match. Ask your employer if it has a matching gift program.
