The Mission: Achieve Excellence
The Bears Athletic Fund, through its fund-raising efforts, strives to support a preeminent intercollegiate athletics program at NYIT by providing student-athletes the opportunity to achieve academic and athletic excellence. When you embrace the mission, student-athletes can achieve excellence. You can be part of giving every student-athlete at NYIT the opportunity to be successful.
You can do this by helping us meet the rising costs of maintaining a highly successful athletics program. As the cost of tuition continues to rise, your support is essential to maintain our academics and athletics tradition of excellence.
When you invest the journey begins:
The Bears Athletic Fund raises funds to support scholarships, student athlete life skills development, a portion of the operational budget for each team, as well as all athletic facility projects. The athletic staff is committed to engaging supporters and fans who embrace NYIT Athletics and want to be part of the success of our student-athletes — seeing them compete in the sport they love, earn a degree from the NYIT and be successful in their lifelong endeavors.
When you invest in NYIT athletics you give every student-athlete the opportunity to earn a college degree and to compete in the sport they love.
