From a day-to-day perspective, the most important gifts received are unrestricted gifts to be used at the Dean’s discretion for critical needs. Supporting the Dean’s Fund will:
Provide financial assistance to enable students to have full access to the Newhouse experience.
Support cutting-edge facilities and provide opportunities for entrepreneurship.
Fund academic trips to New York City, Los Angeles and other markets where students can learn from professionals in the field and network with Newhouse alumni.
Also, while we are still dealing with the COVID pandemic, we are doing everything we can to protect our Syracuse community. This has required investment in additional technology and infrastructure during this challenging time. Gifts to the Dean’s Fund will help us to continue delivering a Newhouse education safely.
Newhouse Supported Scholarship Fund
Gifts to this fund provide academic scholarships to deserving students who would otherwise be unable to afford a Newhouse education.
Other Giving Options
Frequently, annual donors wish to leave a legacy by adding to their annual giving. There are several ways donors make a significant impact upon the school and our students:
WAER Alumni Fund
Gifts to the WAER Alumni Fund enable us to provide the best resources and opportunities for training student journalists.
Supporting WAER’s Alumni Fund will:
Fund travel for away games, enabling students to broadcast in the field during Syracuse University Men’s Basketball, Lacrosse and Football games. Reimbursement for student local travel and out-of-pocket expenses.
Support cutting-edge facilities and provide opportunities for students to develop their skills in the ever changing field of multi-media journalism.
Provide funding for expanded programming and production services, to meet student’s needs and for engineering support.
Establish a Named Scholarship
When you help increase student scholarship support, you give students a head-start in post-college life by reducing the burden of student loan repayments. You can make a Newhouse education affordable to deserving students in a number of ways:
You can endow a scholarship, either in your own name or in honor of a loved one. This creates a permanent fund that will generate financial aid support in perpetuity.
You can establish a current-use named scholarship fund. With this type of fund, dollars given over the pledge period (maximum five years), are immediately awarded to deserving students who meet the scholarship criteria.
