Gifts By Mail

If you wish to make a gift by mail, please make your check payable to the Stony Brook Foundation with your fund designated in the memo portion of the check. For example, you may indicate that it is an unrestricted gift, provide a general description (example: Nursing Scholarships), or include the exact fund name and/or fund number. If you need assistance with designating your gift, please contact

For multi-year pledges or recurring gifts, please complete a pledge agreement form and submit along with your gift. 

Gifts may be mailed to: 

Stony Brook Foundation, Inc.

All gifts received by mail are recorded and credited for tax purposes based on the date postmarked on the outer envelope.
You will receive a mailed receipt from the Stony Brook Foundation within a few days of the receipt of your gift. Donors who make gifts of $250 or more throughout the calendar year will also receive a summary of all contributions each January that may be used for your tax purposes.
