Stony Brook University’s Giving Day Breaks Records

Stony Brook University’s sixth annual Giving Day was a record-breaking success, as the 24-hour fundraising event brought home more than 3,800 gifts totaling $1.6 million, more than doubling the amount raised last year.

The milestones shattered the event’s goal of 3,500 gifts and $1 million, with the Stony Brook community coming together like never before to support 105 programs across the university. More than 3,000 students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends gave to support any combination of programs that matter most to them — including scholarships, athletics, the arts, medicine and many others.

“I witnessed the incredible generosity of our community on a grand scale this Giving Day,” said President Maurie McInnis. “Thank you to everyone who came forward to help fund scholarships, advance research, and further our work as New York’s flagship university. ”

An anonymous couple from the Class of 1967 made a $1 million planned gift to support scholarships in physics, math and the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences. The couple has already supported more than 20 students through prior giving and has now decided to leave a legacy with this generous planned gift.

“I am more inspired every year by the engagement and generosity of the Stony Brook community on Giving Day,” said Justin Fincher, vice president for advancement and executive director of the Stony Brook Foundation. “Our students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends came together yet again to make an incredible impact. We are thankful for everyone’s support.”
