We started this video series in order to give donors the opportunity to tell their stories. Why did they give? What kind of impact did they make through their gift? How has making a donation made them feel more connected to Montclair State University and the Feliciano School of Business?
Many of our donors are alumni who came from families without great means. They were often first in their families to attend college. They made their own way, often working several jobs, in order to receive a degree. They found success in their careers, and are now playing an important role in support of today’s Feliciano School of Business and its students.
This support comes at a critical time, as state support has declined to levels below 20% of total University income. Today it’s even more important to secure the support of our alumni and donors so that we can continue to provide students with a high quality, affordable education.
Our alumni and donors have amazing stories to share. We hope you follow their lead and consider giving back to the Feliciano School of Business and Montclair State University. We guarantee you’ll be glad you did.
