The 5th Annual Planned Giving
Committee Golf Outing.
Dr. Edward Saiff and his wife, Robby, honored their longtime connection with Ramapo by creating a scholarship to recognize engaged and dedicated students.
Last fall, Ramapo College alumni and friends gathered together at the first ever Glam-Up for Facebook event. Guests enjoyed a relaxing lunch while Sephora makeup artists performed their magic and our photographer Carolyn Herring took their pictures. The photos were uploaded to Facebook by Ramapo College students. Guests included (from left) Patty Hemphill '98, Laura Roberts '81, Carolyn Merkel '78, Shabnam Tobaccowala '97 and Meena Joisher '92.
Legacy Society members attended a special reception at the Havemeyer House followed by a reading by the legendary Joyce Carol Oates. The reading was part of the Readings at Ramapo Series. Legacy Society guests received a signed copy of Mudwoman, a recent novel by Joyce Carol Oates, pictured with Purvi Parekh '01,'04 (left) and Kristen Potanka '10 (right).
The Office of Planned Giving sponsored a dinner and presentation titled “Successful Women and Retirement.” The presentation was given by Ramapo College Foundation board member Sarah Beane Ricca at the Havemeyer House. Guests learned valuable planning insights centered on setting retirement goals. Dorothy Bell, June Boswick and Terry Battaglia, pictured at left, were among the attendees.
Your planned giving donation can support student scholarship aid, faculty research projects, enhanced campus facilities and programs. The Office of Planned Giving can help you select the best method of giving to make your charitable gift meaningful, while meeting your personal (financial) goals. By considering your gift planning options, you will discover the many benefits that will create a lasting legacy.
Ramapo College is grateful for the many ways its benefactors support the institution. The Legacy Society recognizes alumni and friends who have created an endowment or who have provided for Ramapo College in their estate plans through wills, life income gifts, retirement plans, life insurance dedications and other planned gifts.
