Year End Appeal


The sky's the limit....
 
Here are just a few of the almost 900 students that received their degrees yesterday, June 3, at Commencement and continue their educational journey as a result of YOUR generosity.  Hostos Community College continues to reach new heights as a premier institution for higher education in the Bronx, and prepares its students with competitive skills and knowledge necessary for upward economic and social mobility. 
 
As we close out this academic year, we invite you to lead a new tradition of annual giving by joining the I AM HOSTOS Giving Society, which recognizes individuals who have taken a leadership role in ensuring the strength of Hostos.  Through your support, you not only improve the potential of our students, but also bring about the betterment of our community.  By pledging a minimum of $100 a month, Hostos will recognize your contribution in our newly established giving circle. 
   
Your support elevates our students reach, such as sending three students to various NASA Space Center and Institutes across the country this summer, as well as engaging and preparing students at an earlier age with the opening of H.E.R.O. High, a new public 9-14 high school for students interested in health careers. It is a collaboration between Hostos Community College, Montefiore Medical Center, CUNY, and the Department of Education.  Also, see below for additional information on the impact of your gift.
 
Please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at (718) 518-4465 or 
oia@hostos.cuny.edu if you have any questions or would like to make any special gift arrangements.
 
Have a wonderful summer and thank you in advance for your support.
