Special Programs & Events

One Vision. One Mission. Students First.

Gifts of every size move the University forward. 


Stockton University’s mission is to develop engaged and effective citizens with a commitment to life-long learning and the capacity to adapt to change in a multi-cultural, interdependent world.  As a public university, Stockton provides an environment for excellence to a diverse student body, including those from underrepresented populations, through an interdisciplinary approach to liberal arts, sciences and professional education.


Consider supporting one of the following special programs and learning initiatives to fulfill Stockton’s mission:


Angela Sena Memorial Alternative Spring Break Fund

The Angela Sena Memorial Alternative Spring Break Fund provides financial assistance to students participating in the Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program.


  • ASB places a group of students at volunteer sites outside of New Jersey to engage in a week of community service.
  • The program provides students with a rewarding way to spend their time off in the spring — promoting community service, developing leadership skills, and creating strong bonds among its participants.
  • Since its founding in 2006, volunteers have had the opportunity to take part in trips to North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.


Atlantic City Coast Day

Atlantic City Coast Day, held Sunday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., is a public education and outreach event. The goal is to provide information about the coastal zone for people living in and around Atlantic City — because it’s a barrier island, after all! Consider making a gift today to help grow this event to be bigger and better!


  • Fun attractions, a touch tank of marine life, wave flume, vendors and games will be featured at this year’s event.

  • The day showcases a variety of public, private, and non-profit organizations with information, displays and demonstrations.

  • Meet local experts on fisheries, wetlands, birds, and beaches.

  • Funds raised will provide for a DJ or radio station, general supplies, signs, tents to shelter the exhibitors and vendors, and fees to pay to the city.

Friends of Hellenic Studies

The Friends of Hellenic Studies (FHS) is a group who volunteer their time, talent and treasure to ensure students, colleagues and community members gain knowledge in and out of the classroom, in the Constantelos Reading Room and across the globe in the beauty that is Greece. FHS works to inspire others to support student scholarships and academic programming for the Dean C. & Zoë S. Pappas Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies at Stockton University. All gifts will:


  • Support student scholarships
  • Offer students and faculty financial assistance to study abroad in Greece, Turkey or Cyprus
  • Provide for lecture series, symposia and cultural activities
  • Facilitate once-in-a-lifetime experiences for qualified students seeking to learn more about the essence of Hellenism

Stockton Model U.N.

This program is a simulation of global policy making through the U.N. system, where students represent sovereign countries, write policy papers that identify creative solutions to global challenges, prepare and deliver formal diplomatic speeches and draft and vote on U.N. resolutions based on real world challenges and crises.


  • Gifts allow Stockton’s team of 32-36 students to travel to New York for the spring conference.
  • The cost per student ranges from $900-$1,300, and includes travel expenses and hotel accommodations for five days in New York City, conference registration, briefings with Permanent Offices to the U.N. or other U.S. offices, business cards and other professional supplies, and the opportunity to and exciting field trip opportunities.
  • To ensure that cost is not a barrier, each student pays $150. Student Senate provides some budgetary support, but corporate and individual donations are needed to make up the difference.

Stockton University Retiree Association

The Stockton University Retiree Association (SURA) provides meaningful opportunities for retiring employees to stay in touch with colleagues, enjoy social interactions and volunteer at the institution. This fund offers financial support for SURA expenses and activities, as well as makes philanthropic contributions to the Foundation. 


​Stockton Women's Leadership Council

Over the last 10 years, Women’s Leadership Councils have formed across the country. These organizations, made up of dedicated female philanthropists, are making a significant impact in their communities. The Stockton Women’s Leadership Council provides mentoring opportunities for students and alumnae, creates a culture of philanthropy and offers personal and professional enrichment opportunities for women in the region. 


  • The Stockton Women’s Leadership Council provides mentorship and scholarship opportunities to deserving students demonstrating academic achievement and financial need.
  • Scholarship recipients must be in good academic standing, earn/maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and have financial need, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Scholarship recipients who are undergraduates must maintain full-time enrollment and graduates must maintain either part- or full-time enrollment.
