A Valued Partnership
Partnerships with corporate, foundation, and individual donors are the cornerstone of the University’s ability to stay at the forefront of higher education. The generosity of donors when combined with our expert faculty and dedicated students, create a powerful formula for success and serve as a valuable investment in the future of our regional community and the state of New Jersey.
Your personal commitment and philanthropic giving are more essential than ever to the success of the University. For the donors who have made generous contributions to the University and its students, we remain forever grateful. Your vision and commitment to affecting lives...shaping worlds at William Paterson University is an investment in the future that will yield returns for generations to come. Thank you!
Stewardship and Recognition
All donors are enrolled in the William Paterson Society, a donor-recognition group, according to gift level, with a variety of University-wide recognition events and opportunities for donors who contribute at leadership levels. President Kathleen Waldron personally recognizes those donors who contribute at leadership levels by hosting a donor leadership event annually. Donors are kept abreast of University activities through periodic updates and the award-winning WP Magazine.
Scholarship donors are held in high esteem and the scholar/donor bond can flourish over time into a life-long relationship. Endowed Scholarship donors or donors who contribute minimum scholarship awards of $1,000 will receive an invitation to the Scholarship Luncheon as well as a stewardship report informing them of the recipient of their scholarship and the scholar’s status.
