Partnerships that Impact Public Higher Education in NY


SUNY Impact Foundation

As the country’s largest comprehensive system of public higher education, SUNY has an incomparable responsibility: to educate more people, and to educate them better—an ambitious goal that requires new levels and means of support.

The State University of New York (SUNY) Impact Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation with a mission to support SUNY in taking what works to scale to drive student success. Founded in 2016, the Foundation works with philanthropies and private sector partners who recognize the power of SUNY as a system. Together, we leverage investments to replicate and scale proven programs across SUNY’s 64 colleges and universities.

Given institutions within 30 miles of every New Yorker, SUNY has boundless potential to expand educational opportunity and support students through completion and into successful careers. Our vision is to ensure all New Yorkers have access to the high-quality, affordable higher education that is synonymous with the SUNY brand, while establishing clear pathways to degree completion and career success.
