Annual Day of Giving


Donor Spotlight

The goal of the program is to use data and analytics to provide tailored supports for students to guide them to degree completion.The program team is using a custom-built predictive analytic tool to identify different tiers of students at risk for dropping out. Based on this analysis, they will recommend interventions tailored to each student’s needs—e.g. peer coaching, personalized text-based messages to help students stay on track, and—for those most at risk—comprehensive advising

The three-year program will also offer options for carefully selected John Jay students to take tuition-free summer or winter courses to maintain academic momentum, as well as small completion grants that keep students from stopping out for financial reasons. A faculty mentor will offer guidance on post-graduate planning such as exploring career or graduate school options. In the summer of 2020, we will hold a Learning Summit with other CUNY colleges and community partners to share and reflect on the learnings from this initiative and to encourage other CUNY campuses to adopt cost-effective and targeted supports to increase completion rates and student success.

The Price Family Foundation is a private family foundation dedicated to helping economically disadvantaged young people reach their fullest potential. The Foundation believes that it is not enough to just help students enter college, but it is also essential to support and coach them through to graduation, as well as help students build strong resumes through professional work experiences.

Many companies match the donations that their employees make to non-profit and charitable organizations. This is a great way for alumni and friends of John Jay College to double or even triple their contribution and increase the impact of their gift.
Find out if your employer matches gifts by checking with your Human Resources Office. If your employer doesn’t have a matching gift program, check if your spouse’s employer does – some organizations match employees’ spouse and retiree gifts to charities as well.
