Annual Fund

Students on the phone talking to donors

Your gift to the Annual Fund will be used where it is needed most including providing scholarships and internships that help students thrive academically; supporting study abroad and undergraduate research opportunities; funding math and science tutoring, and sustaining other critical programs.

Student Emergency Fund

John Jay Pantry

The Student Emergency Fund provides short-term relief to students facing homelessness, hunger and food insecurity, medical emergencies, child care issues, family emergencies, transportation challenges and other difficulties so they stay in school.

Scholarship Fund

More than half of John Jay students work while attending college. Receiving a scholarship allows students to concentrate on their studies rather than finances and to thrive academically and professionally. The Scholarship Fund provides donors an opportunity to have a big impact on student success by making any sized gift, large or small, to the pooled fund.

Matching Gift Program

Many companies will match their employees’ donations to charitable organizations up to a certain amount. This is a great way to double or even triple the impact of your contribution. Inquire 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.

Planned Gift/Bequest

The John Jay Society is an esteemed group of alumni and friends who have invested in the future of John Jay College by establishing a planned gift. There are multiple ways to give via a planned gift including a bequest, charitable gift annuity and by adding the College as a beneficiary to your insurance policy.
