Scholarship Benefit Gala

Scholarship Benefit Gala Thank You

Thanks to our sponsors, supporters and alumni, we raised more than $460,000 at the Stockton University Foundation Scholarship Benefit Gala. Proceeds from the event support the Benefit Gala Endowed Scholarship Fund, which provides more than $170,000 in student aid annually. Since 2007, the Scholarship Benefit Gala has added more than $3 Million to the endowment.


A Night to Remember!

Nearly 700 members of the Stockton community came together to celebrate the leadership and career of retiring president Harvey Kesselman.Throughout his tenure, Dr. Kesselman has worked tirelessly to enhance the value of a Stockton degree and elevate the university’s recognition and reputation. His unwavering commitment to putting students first has been an inspiration to many, and the event was a testament to his exceptional leadership.
