Give Back

As a graduate of William Paterson University, your gift has special meaning. Among other values, your gift:

  • Sustains and supports people and programs. In these days of increased competition for public funds, universities must increasingly rely on private gifts from alumni and friends to succeed.

  • Strengthens the value of your degree. Alumni giving is a criterion used in the national rankings of colleges and universities. Your gift publicly demonstrates your pride in William Paterson University, and your investment in its future. As the University's recognition increases, so does the value of your degree.

  • Influences opinion-makers. The percentage of alumni who give to William Paterson University is also a factor when corporations and foundations award grants, when high school seniors and parents evaluate colleges and universities, and when other donors prepare to make their philanthropic decisions.

We invite you to Invest in William Paterson's future. Your gift, no matter the size, signals strong confidence in our students, faculty, and you, our alumni, and the ability to make a difference.
