Carpe Diem Society

The Carpe Diem Society recognizes alumni, faculty, friends and others who secure the future of Montclair State University. Our Carpe Diem Society donors have established gifts through their wills, life insurance policies, retirement designations, trusts or other gift plans. Legacy gifts are part of Montclair State’s tradition and play a key role in the University’s future. We are deeply grateful for these gifts and know that they will enhance the programs and support of future generations of students and leaders.


Your Legacy Makes an Impact

“I don’t think many people realize how important scholarships are to college students, how life changing they really can be. Your generous gifts allow students like me to continue to study, and it is because of loyal donors that I can continue my education and follow my dream. I am deeply grateful, and I hope to pay it forward someday.”
