The NYU School of Professional Studies George H. Heyman, Jr. Program for Philanthropy and Fundraising is involved in a number of community and industry outreach intitatives. These programs involve partnering with institutions of higher learning and other nonprofit entities.
Recently, leaders of America’s historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving institutions of higher learning, and tribal colleges assembled at New York University for “Leadership in Fundraising: A Conference for Minority-Serving Institutions,” co-sponsored by the NYU School of Professional Studies George H. Heyman, Jr. Program for Philanthropy and Fundraising, and the University’s Faculty Resource Network (FRN). The Conference provided an in-depth overview of all aspects of effective fundraising, including major gifts, annual campaigns, the “art of the ask,” planned giving, and corporate and foundation relations.
