Phyllis and Frank ’77 Angello

For nearly two decades, Phyllis and Frank ’77 Angello have been devoted champions of an Adelphi education and generous benefactors to the University.

In 2022, they further expanded their impact at Adelphi with a $500,000 planned gift to the Phyllis and Frank Angello Scholarship for meritorious students.

“We are very proud that the Angello name will be forever linked with Adelphi,” Frank said. “It demonstrates our commitment to scholarship and its importance in our own lives. We strongly believe that scholarships are critical to making an Adelphi education accessible and enabling students to achieve academic and lifelong success.”

This gift extends the Angellos‘ legacy of outstanding service, leadership and philanthropy in support of Adelphi University. Their indelible impact is made not only through the scholarship but also their planned giving commitments and a 2015 gift of $2 million, for which the University’s Angello Alumni House was named. The Angello Alumni House has been a center for University and community programs for 50 years.

Frank and Phyllis’ commitment to Adelphi was honored at our 15th Annual President’s Gala for Outstanding Service to the University. They are members of Adelphi’s Million Dollar Round Table and the Adelphi Forever Gold Society for planned giving.

Frank is a trustee emeritus of the Adelphi University Board of Trustees and a 1977 alumnus of the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business. He forged a successful career in banking and leadership, including 26 years at JPMorgan Chase’s Treasury and Security Services Division, where he was chief financial officer. He was elected to the University’s board of trustees in 2007, serving with distinction on nearly every board committee until 2018. He also participated in the 2014 search that selected current President Christine M. Riordan, PhD. The board elected to name Frank trustee emeritus in 2019.

Phyllis Angello had a 37-year career with the Internal Revenue Service, in executive and administrative positions. She also served on the corporate advisory board of Abilities, Inc. at The Viscardi Center, which prepares adolescents and adults with severe disabilities for entry or reentry into the workforce.

The Angellos have two sons, Matthew and Peter. The latter is a graduate of Adelphi, Class of 2011. During Peter’s years as a student, the Angellos also served on the University’s Parents and Families Association.
