Giving Societies

The University has established these giving societies to express its deep appreciation to donors who demonstrate their commitment to William Paterson.




Heritage Society

The Heritage Society was established in 2011 to celebrate loyal donors who have given to William Paterson University for 20 or more years at any giving level. We currently have 3,000 members across the country. Learn more.





Hobart Society

The Hobart Society recognizes our alumni and friends who have decided to leave a legacy gift to the University through a bequest, charitable gift annuity, gift of life insurance, charitable remainder trust, or other planned gift. We are grateful to the Hobart Society members whose planned gift to William Paterson will support donor scholarships for deserving students in perpetuity. Learn more.
