Annual Gifts

Great public universities like Stony Brook inspire students to fulfill their dreams, enable faculty to excel in teaching and research, provide solutions to the biggest challenges of our time, and are catalysts for economic growth. Annual gifts support these mission-driven priorities–and more!

Each year, thousands of alumni, parents, University faculty and staff, and friends demonstrate that Stony Brook is a priority to them by making an annual gift. Some make a gift or pledge in response to a letter from a peer or one of our deans, others respond to a telephone call from one of our outstanding Stony Brook students, while others choose to make a gift online.

Your annual gift can be for discretionary use (i.e., a gift without restrictions) or designated to support a specific University program, including key initiatives of President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, a particular college or school, a center or institute, or a specific department, program, or an existing fund. 

You can support one or more of these programs by making a gift now through our secure online giving page.

Annual gifts provide the University's leadership with the type of flexible resources necessary to fund innovative programs, address urgent needs, and ensure a level of quality and excellence not funded by state appropriations or tuition revenues.
