Tis the Season is an annual fundraising event hosted by Campus Residences which collects money to give to various charities around the holiday season. This is also a Quad competition and part of the Battle of the Undergraduate Colleges. The winning Quad is determined on a per capita basis, and not by total dollars raised.
Proceeds from Tis the Season will be distributed to these charities:
  • Nana's House

    Nana’s House provides neglected, abused, needy or abandoned children (from 0-18 years old) with a safe, secure and loving home. These children have no parents to care for them because of death, separation, abandonment, illness or perhaps other reasons. This organization is not state-funded.


  • Campus Haiti Relief

    The Division of Campus Residences Haiti Relief provides support to the Maison Fortune’ Orphanage. After the devastation of the earthquake, this organization took on 70 extra children whose parents had passed away. The orphanage provides children with shelter, schooling, and medical attention. They also operate educational and meal service programs for local children.


  • Holiday Love

    Holiday Love is a program that provides underprivileged children with the Holiday they deserve. Children and parents from the Sunshine Prevention Center in Port Jefferson are invited to a holiday celebration with games, crafts, food, dancing, a Christmas Tree and a guest appearance by Santa himself. All the children who also attend receive a special present. Holiday Love is a completely volunteer based and run by students here on the Stony Brook Campus.


  • SBU Food Pantry

    The purpose of the SBU Food Pantry is to establish and maintain a functioning food pantry to serve students of Stony Brook University and the Stony Brook University community that are at risk of food insecurity. The SBU Food Pantry’s goal is to service as many people as possible to ensure that those in need of a reliable and stable food source have a place to go to combat food insecurity. The SBU Food Pantry will provide essential food items to assure that food insecure populations on campus are indeed benefitting from this resource.


  • Colonial Youth and Family Services

    Colonial Youth and Family Services is a charitable agency dedicated to promoting the physical, emotional and social potential of youth and their family members. They offer programs that provide healthy development through education, counseling, advocacy, training, prevention, volunteerism and support services.


  • Team Rubicon

    Team Rubicon seeks to provide our veterans with three things they lose after leaving the military: a purpose, gained through disaster relief; community, built by serving with others; and self-worth, from recognizing the impact one individual can make. Coupled with leadership development and other opportunities, TR also aims to "bridge the gap" between military and civilian life.


  • Stony Brook Veterans Home

    The LISVH is a place our veterans are proud to call home while receiving rehabilitation or during their stay as a long term resident. They are proud to spend their day as participants in our Adult Day Health Care Program. The LISVH is operated by the Health Sciences Center of Stony Brook University. Through this relationship, they can provide state of the art, comprehensive medical, nursing and ancillary services to those we serve.


  • Stony Brook Sunshine Fund

    The Sunrise Fund helps sustain the new Outpatient Pediatric Hematology and Oncology facility located in our comprehensive Cancer Center, aptly named the Stony Brook University Cancer Center. The Sunrise Fund supports a number of special programs and is the only pediatric oncology program on Long Island that is tied directly to our research university.
