Capital & Endowment

Thank you for your interest in supporting NYISE.

We believe that every contribution matters and every contributor matters.



Capital Gifts are substantial gifts given to meet building or endowment needs that cannot be achieved through NYISE’s operating budget. Capital initiatives are long-term and support current and future generations of NYISE students. Past capital projects have included upgrades to our gymnasium, the installation of energy conscious lighting equipment, and air conditioning in our gymnasium.

If you are interested in making a donation in support of ongoing or future capital projects, please contact Eba Taylor at (718) 519-7000 x667 or at


Endowment support at NYISE is traditionally made with significant gifts to a permanent fund where the principal remains intact and from which only earned income is spent. The rate of spending of the earned income is determined by NYISE’s Board of Trustees. Endowment gifts provide financial strength for NYISE and help ensure a secure future.
