The Griffin Fund

The Griffin Fund

The Griffin Fund is a crucial resource that supports scholarships for deserving students; allows us to attract and retain talented faculty; and helps us offer diverse service-learning opportunities. Annual giving to the fund is the most important way you can support the College!



Many people make their annual charitable donations in December, with the majority of gifts being made a couple of days before the New Year. Below are some helpful tips to ensure your tax deductible gift qualifies for 2018.

·         Checks must be post marked by Saturday, December 29 and can be mailed to the College or the lockbox (NJ PO Box) for processing.

·         Credit card gifts online need to be submitted before midnight on Monday, December 31. If you are mailing a gift form with a credit card number on it, we need to receive it in our office by Thursday, December 27. Please mail gift forms with credit card information directly to the College (address below).
