The Fund for Ramapo College

By offering unrestricted support to the College, the Fund for Ramapo College affords leadership the flexibility to embrace new ideas and emerging opportunities, while meeting the continually-evolving needs of the Ramapo College community. This is especially important now, during the pandemic. Every student, faculty member and corner of campus benefits from the fund for Ramapo. It is truly the most powerful tool in unlocking the College’s potential.

In a very short time, we were able to adjust our delivery of education, employ new forms of remote technology, empower faculty and move almost our entire workforce off-campus. Donations to The Fund for Ramapo College gave us the resources we needed to make that possible.

It is no surprise that Ramapo’s stature continues to climb as giving support from alumni, parents, students, faculty/staff, friends, and board members grows, helping to provide student scholarships, fund faculty development, enhance curricular programs, support undergraduate research opportunities and subsidize faculty lines.

Did you know that the CARES Act allows you to donate up to $300 to qualified organizations in 2020 and receive a reduction to your adjusted gross income by the same amount? Two additional opportunities with tax benefits include the donation of appreciated securities and gifts made through the IRA Charitable Rollover program.  Please contact David Terdiman, Assistant Vice President of Advancement, with any questions about these opportunities, 201.684.7179/
