This year marks the 27th year of the Legacy Awards Gala, sponsored by the William Paterson University Foundation. The Legacy Awards honor those who exemplify the leadership of our namesake, William Paterson, by demonstrating a strong support for public
higher education in the state of New Jersey, and generosity to others through philanthropic leadership. Funds raised through the gala directly affect the lives of our students, most of whom rely on scholarships to complete their studies. With
your generous support of the Gala, you can truly make a difference in the lives of our students through scholarships and programming as we strive to achieve the University's mission of academic excellence and student success.
