A Message from the Foundation's Acting Cheif Development Officer, Edward W. Ahart II

December 22, 2022

Dear Kean Alumni, Parents and Friends, 

This time of year is always one for reflection of togetherness and gratitude. In that spirit, I would like to open by saying thank you to our entire Kean University community for all you do for the Kean University Foundation.

From extraordinary support from our loyal donors and volunteers in the form of scholarship and programmatic support, to substantial funding for faculty through research grants from private foundations and corporate partners, the impact of philanthropy to the Kean University Foundation is truly transformational for our students and the future of the University. You keep our Cougars climbing higher!

As you are reading through the latest edition of the Foundation’s eNewsletter and all the initiatives taking place across campus, I hope it brings memories of your own to the surface: reminiscing about how it felt to step foot on campus the first time, the faculty member that became a life changing mentor, the friends you keep to this day, and all the reasons you remain a proud Kean Cougar. It is for these reasons we all stay connected and give back together.

From all of us at the Kean University Foundation, we wish you and your family the happiest of holidays. I will close by saying sit tight and keep close. There are some truly exciting and historic things taking place at Kean University!

With sincere appreciation, 

Ed Ahart
