About Giving to Hofstra

A Message from the VP of Development and Alumni Affairs


Dear Friends:

I am delighted to have the opportunity to serve as Hofstra's vice president for Development. Working closely with President Rabinowitz and the Development Office, I have witnessed the exceptional passion that our alumni, students, administration, faculty, staff and friends have for making Hofstra the very best university. We have enjoyed tremendous success and with your continued involvement the potential is limitless.

To continue to achieve our goals and enhance Hofstra's reputation as a national center for academic excellence, we need your help. Our alumni are the lifeblood of Hofstra University, our loudest cheerleaders and the key to our successful future. With this in mind, I ask that you, as alumni, give serious thought to the level of support that you can provide your alma mater. Your commitment to Hofstra University plays a central role in advancing our mission and achieving our goals.

Thank you for your continued support and your efforts on behalf of Hofstra. So much of our success depends on you. I look forward to seeing you on campus.


Alan J. Kelly
