2023 Sun Giving Day!

On Giving Day, join us in supporting independent, student journalism for a full 24 hours by donating to The Cornell Daily Sun Alumni Association! 

We are an independent, student newspaper. Help keep us reporting with a tax-deductible donation to the Cornell Daily Sun Alumni Association, a not-for-profit dedicated to aiding The Sun. Click here to donate to the Sun, or click the red button below! For each gift received, our generous alums will match it dollar-for-dollar.

Want to support The Sun further? Become an exclusive member of The Cornell Daily Sun!

If you want to support The Sun past the annual giving day, sign up for any of our membership packages! This is separate and additional to your giving day donation to the CDSAA.

Access behind the scene content, exclusive merchandise, and more. Sign up using the payment links below for any one of our exclusive membership packages. Perks will be distributed once per calendar year and merchandise designs will be updated on a yearly basis to keep designs fresh. 

Disclaimers: this is not a tax-deductable donation and the plan you are signing up for will be in perpetuity, but you have the opportunity to cancel the plan at any time. Since perks are delivered once a year, spread throughout operations, cancelling your membership early (before the end of the one-year mark) gives us the right to request payment if you have already received your perks.
