In recognition of the College's founding year, we are challenging 1853 alumni to make an online gift to the College during the month of April. Your support directly impacts the education and life experiences of our students. The collective power of annual gifts allows Manhattan College and its students to thrive. Alumni giving rates are not just a measure of alumni satisfaction; they account for five percent in the U.S. News Best Colleges rankings methodology. These rankings are vital as they advance the national profile of Manhattan College, increase the quantity and quality of student applications, enhance the degrees of existing graduates and display the pride and enthusiasm of our alumni.


Please make your gift now and be counted as one of the 1853! A gift at any level makes a difference, and everyone who makes a gift of $100 or more will be entered into a raffle to win an iPad. Make your gift today.
