Since its founding in 1847, The City College of New York (CCNY) has been true to its legacy of access, opportunity, and transformation. CCNY is as diverse, dynamic, and boldly visionary as the city itself. CCNY advances knowledge and critical thinking, and fosters research, creativity, and innovation across academic, artistic, and professional disciplines. As a public institution with public purpose and a 171 year history, CCNY produces citizens who make an impact on the cultural, social, and economic vitality of New York, the nation, and the world.
The 21st Century Foundation and the City College Fund recently agreed to terms that, over the next few months, will guide their combination into a new entity—a single Foundation overseeing philanthropy in support of The City College of New York and to advance the vision we all share for the College’s future prosperity. The new Foundation will build on the historic legacies of both organizations, each of which have worked for decades to strengthen and advance the mission of the City College of New York. Both organizations are led by CCNY alumni with strong track records of supporting the College. Both manage vast resources that have supported student scholarships, endowed named professorships, underwritten academic and co-curricular programs, and in many other ways ensured that CCNY is able to offer the very best educational opportunities to students.
