Executive Director's Message

Working with the Rowan University Foundation Board of Directors is both a privilege and a pleasure. The Foundation is committed to strengthening the University and providing students with exceptional educational opportunities.

It is an exciting time for the University as it embarks on another transformational period of progress. Now is a wonderful time to consider making an investment in Rowan University. Gifts of all sizes make a difference in the lives of Rowan students.

Support from our loyal and generous friends continues to forge strong partnerships for the future. I invite you to explore this site to learn how you too can play an integral role in supporting excellence at Rowan University.

Chair's Message

It is my sincere pleasure and privilege to serve my alma mater as Chairman of the Rowan University Foundation Board of Directors during this time of exciting progress. The meaningful and positive benefits that Rowan provides make the Foundation’s work on behalf of the University extremely rewarding.

I am honored to work with a Board that comprises accomplished and dedicated alumni and friends to ensure continued success for the Foundation and the University.

Since the Foundation’s formation in 1983, the role of private funding has become increasingly critical to Rowan’s progress as an institution. Through diligent management of the endowment funds, the Foundation provides vital funds for scholarships, research and programs to ensure students receive an exceptional education of challenge, distinction and value.

The support of our alumni, friends and corporate partners opens a world of possibilities for Rowan’s students. I encourage you to share our success and invest in our bright future.

Thank you for your interest and support.
