Adelphi University’s 17th Annual President’s Gala

An evening to benefit student scholarships at Adelphi University.

Adelphi’s annual President’s Gala, the University’s largest fundraising event, supports student scholarships at Adelphi. Each year, the University provides more than $50 million in scholarship assistance to its students, including more than 5,000 undergraduates from across the country.

At the President’s Gala, individuals who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to the University and the larger community are recognized. This event draws the region’s top civic, business, and community leaders, as well as Adelphi trustees, alumni and friends, students, administrators, faculty and staff, to celebrate our honorees and the University.
