What is the NYSUT Legacy Fund?

NYSUT locals, chapters, retiree councils, or individual NYSUT members, can honor hometown NYSUT activists with a contribution in their name to The NYSUT Legacy Fund.

Make a contribution in honor of a retiring, longtime local president. Commemorate the passing of a dedicated negotiations team member. Mark an important professional milestone, or a significant union achievement, for a committee chair.

“There are countless in-service and retiree activists who work tirelessly on behalf of NYSUT,” said Ron Gross, NYSUT second vice president. “With over 600,000 members, it’s impossible for the statewide union to recognize them all. The NYSUT Legacy Fund is a way to give long overdue recognition to these dedicated men and women — the backbone of our union.”

While we appreciate donations in any amount, NYSUT Legacy Fund recognizes honorees at three contribution levels. All donors receive a letter of thanks, on behalf of the statewide union, for their contribution.

  • $250 – Honorees receive a certificate of recognition, and a NYSUT Legacy Fund pin.
  • $500 – Honorees receive a certificate of recognition, a NYSUT Legacy Fund pin, and a mention in NYSUT United magazine.
  • $1,000 – Honorees receive a certificate of recognition, a NYSUT Legacy Fund pin, a mention in NYSUT United magazine and recognition at the annual NYSUT Representative Assembly.
