The Division of Institutional Advancement and the Ramapo College Foundation share a mission to provide the resources that make the difference in Ramapo College’s quest for educational excellence.

The generosity of donors like the Stephen and Mary Birch Foundation and the Alfiero and Lucia Palestroni Foundation has directly benefited the students and faculty of Ramapo College.

Take a look to see how the generosity of the Palestroni Foundation has helped fund an adaptive technology lab for students with a range of disabilities, and in addition, helped build a state-of-the-art developmental neuroscience lab.

The history of Ramapo begins with the Birch family.  See how gifts from the Stephen and Mary Birch Foundation have contributed to the revitalization of the science facilities on campus.
