I am pleased to present our third Invest in CUNY Campaign update. As of September 2009, the colleges of CUNY have raised over $1.55 billion to support more than 250,000 students who attend our 23 colleges and institutions on any given day. This unprecedented success is led by the efforts of our friends and alumni.
Meeting our $3 billion philanthropic goal by 2015 will in large part depend on the continued generosity of dedicated alumni like Cheryle Levine, ’75 Queensborough Community College, committed faculty and staff like Fred Peskoff, Ed.D and Dennis Bonner of BMCC, and generous friends like the Rudin family and Anne and Bernard Spitzer. Invest in CUNY News will bring you profiles of such individuals periodically. I am confident that others will be inspired to follow in their paths.
