YOUR GIFT MATTERS

TO RIDER STUDENTS AND PARENTS

A special message to our donors

Thank You

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear Alumni and Friends, 

I am heartened once again to say thank you to the thousands of alumni, friends, faculty, staff, corporations, foundations and community partners who so generously support Rider University. Your gifts are helping to transform Rider in many meaningful ways. 

Take a look at this Honor Roll and you will see the evolution that is taking place. Our campus is improving. Our academic programs are growing. Our scholarships are increasing. But most importantly, our students are excelling in the classroom and beyond. 

This year, in honor of 150 years of women at Rider, we are pleased to launch the Rider Women’s Giving Challenge. A group of distinguished alumnae have taken the reins to launch this $255,000 giving challenge to encourage alumnae and others to join them in supporting the University’s strong tradition of helping young women maximize their potential and excel in their professional lives. 

The challenge will match – dollar for dollar – new and increased gifts from Rider alumnae and gifts in honor of Rider women. The success of the Women’s Giving Challenge will send a clear message that Rider women value their education and the contribution the University has made to their lives. I hope you will consider being a part of this unique and important fundraising initiative. 

Every single gift plays an integral role in making our University stronger. Your gift has played a vital part in that transformation, and I couldn’t be more thankful.

Go Broncs!

Gregorgy G. Dell'Omo, Ph.D.
President, Rider University
