Make Your Gift Count

The Annual Fund and the Wagner Experience Fund offer great opportunities to support the NYU Wagner mission. See below for details on each program, and find giving instructions on the right.

The Wagner Annual Fund

Gifts to the Wagner Annual Fund provide essential resources that help us increase financial support for students, hire engaging and innovative new faculty members and enhance our core programs. Your contributions also raise Wagner's giving rate, increasing the school's eligibility for funding from foundations and corporations. Annual Fund donors are members of Giving Circles that recognize their extraordinary generosity.

Dean's Circle members make pace-setting financial contributions of $1000 or more. They are recognized at annual donor receptions and in major Wagner publications. They also receive invitations to V.I.P receptions, lectures and other special events.

Friends of Wagner offer their support through gifts ranging from $250 to $999. They receive exclusive event invitations and are recognized at annual donor receptions as well as through Wagner's newsletters.

Ellen Schall Experience Fund

Contributions to the Ellen Schall Experience Fund provide much-needed support for Wagner students who have taken on unpaid public service internships locally and around the world.

In this competitive job market, internships are critical to helping students land meaningful, career advancing jobs after graduation. Unfortunately, few public service organizations have the resources to support student interns: over 50% of the internships that Wagner students take on are unpaid. This adds significantly to students' financial burden and often limits their ability to pursue internships that will best position them for future employment.

Make a gift to the Ellen Schall Experience Fund, which helps provide financial support (in the form of $5000 stipends) to students who have taken on unpaid internships that complement their career goals.
