A Banner Year for Fundraising
Adelphi University's 22nd annual President's Gala on Saturday, June 11, raised more than $345,000 for the President's Student Success Scholarship, an endowment that has now surpassed $1 million.
The 22nd Annual President’s Gala on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at the Garden City Hotel was the culminating event of Adelphi’s milestone anniversary year. Together with friends, benefactors, students and alumni, the Adelphi community honored our University, students and all who have supported our mission to transform lives.
It was a memorable evening featuring musical performances by alumni, a gallery display of Adelphi history from University Archives and Special Collections, heartfelt tributes to our generous supporters, and inspiring stories of transformation.
The event raised more than $345,000 for the President’s Student Success Scholarship and paid special tribute to the Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology, which is celebrating the 65th anniversary of the accreditation of its doctoral program.
Supporting Our Students
Net proceeds support the President’s Student Success Scholarship, which ensures juniors and seniors who are facing sudden financial hardship are able to complete their degrees. This endowment was established by President Christine Riordan in 2018 from the proceeds of that year’s President’s Gala—it helps to ensure that the Adelphi story continues for future generations of our students.
We are no longer hosting the event virtually due to the high demand for in-person attendance. Please contact Jackie Hertling at email@example.com for more information and to request to receive the event recording.
President’s Gala in-person attendees will observe Adelphi’s health and safety guidelines.
