Make a Gift

As you prepare to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of your graduation from Montclair, we’d like to remind you of the importance of alumni giving. Private philanthropy is indispensable to the University’s future because traditional state funding allocations no longer adequately support the growth and development of public universities or the needs of our students.

Your 50th reunion class gift is a special opportunity to make a difference in the life of current Montclair students. Consider making your gift in multiples of 50 to honor your 50th anniversary. Don’t wait – make your gift now!
