Honoring Our Donors

Every donor who makes a gift for the benefit of Stony Brook University plays an important role in making it one of the best public universities in the world. The generosity of all donors, no matter the size of their gifts, sustains a tradition of excellence at Stony Brook. Private support creates opportunities for bright students, makes possible research that improves the quality of life, and enables the University to serve the state and nation with pride.

To honor our generous donors, the University and the Stony Brook Foundation offer a number of different recognition programs. Giving societies recognize annual gifts, cumulative/lifetime giving, and deferred gifts.

Annual recognition is based upon gifts received between July 1 and June 30.
