Gift of Giving
The Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW) embodies Touro’s commitment to the Judaic tenet of Tikun Olam, the striving to make the world a better place for all people. In accordance with the traditional social work values of social and economic justice, GSSW is committed to proving accessible and affordable quality education to educationally underserved groups through neighborhood-based MSW programs. Those groups include people of color, immigrants, refugees, and the Jewish community.
GSSW trains highly talented and devoted social work practitioners to serve in a variety of professional roles and settings. Even more, our graduates demonstrate cultural competence and caring and effective delivery of services to at-risk and vulnerable populations.
Established in 2006, and nearing its 10th anniversary, GSSW currently has 300 students and has graduated over 500 alumni. With students trained in offering care for the persistently mentally ill, veterans and elderly, as well as demonstrating leadership in the healthcare and Jewish communal realms, the Graduate School of Social Work fulfills Touro’s commitment to expanding dignity, tolerance and respect across all nations, races and creeds.
The continued growth and advancement of GSSW depends upon the support of alumni and friends. Please consider joining us and working with the Graduate School of Social Work to make a difference in people's lives, every day.
Your financial support will immeasurably enhance the quality of the education at the GSSW and will provide critical funding to sustain our program. Additional, meaningful giving and naming opportunities are available and we would be delighted to work with you to tailor a gift to your interests and financial circumstances. Our goal is to work together in crafting a giving program that would be meaningful to our donors and enable them to fulfill their highest philanthropic goals and dreams.
