Your generosity helps us move the world.
Dear Friends of Iona College,
It is with great enthusiasm that I invite you to explore the Advancement & External Affairs division of Iona College. From enhancing the image of Iona and creating alumni networking events, to hosting presidential receptions and working with donors in creating new scholarships, this integrated team of high-performing professionals is on a collective mission to provide our students with access to an affordable and career-oriented education. It is our goal to preserve the rich history of tradition and service at Iona that spans nearly 75 years, while also elevating the College to the next level of excellence as a premier institution of higher education in the Northeast.
The Advancement & External Affairs team is comprised of Advancement & Presidential Events; Advancement Services; Alumni Relations; Annual Giving; College Marketing & Communications; Corporate, Foundation and Government Relations; and Major & Planned Giving.
It is due to the encouraging generosity of our benefactors that our community of learners, scholars and alumni are moving the world each and every day. Thank you for your gifts of time and talent as we aspire to enrich the Iona experience for all.
Certa Bonum Certamen.
