Help us bring CJC to NYC

Your gift and support can help CJC students experience what it’s like to learn, work and live in one of the most important media and communication hubs in the nation.

Wendy Goodman, B.S. Journalism 1991
Executive Vice President, FCB Health

“FCB Health hosted a group from CJCxNYC and it was a highlight of my summer. The students were attentive, prepared and asked thoughtful and interesting questions. I was impressed with how much they already know about our industry and their curiosity to learn more. Since then, I’ve connected with many of these students and hope to bring them on as interns or even hire them post-graduation.”

Tamarra Thal, B.S. Public Relations 2020
Executive Communications Lead, IBM

“We hosted CJCxNYC students for a tour of IBM’s NYC office. Students raced an AI-powered car around a mini track to learn about machine learning, talked to a human-like robot and took an immersive experience through a self-autonomous ship in our Innovation Studio. It’s very rewarding to help inspire emerging public relations leaders.”

Opportunities to Give

Sponsor a Student

A $6,000 gift can cover one student’s costs for a summer internship through CJCxNYC, including housing, travel and transportation. 


Streeteasy, a Zillow brand, reports the median rent in Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan ranges from $2,250 – $3,300. That’s up to five times more expensive than the monthly rent in many Gainesville apartments. 

A $1,500 gift can cover one month’s rent for one student in most NYC student housing apartments. A $5,000 gift can cover up to three months’ rent. 

Travel & Transportation

Help students get to and around NYC with a flight or monthly MetroCard. 

  • A $127 gift can cover a student’s MetroCard for one month. 
  • A $300 gift can cover most round trip flights from Florida to New York. 

Local Experiences

Help students experience the culture and vibrancy of NYC through group visits or tours at museums, shows, studios and local restaurants. Ways to give include tickets, free tours or cash donations.
