2017 Gala Sponsors



Darlene L. Pfeiffer

Darlene Pfeiffer is our students’ greatest champion. Her first contribution in 2005 established the Kentucky Fried Chicken Scholarship in support of students who demonstrate self-motivation and an entrepreneurial spirit. As Darlene’s support for scholarships grew to seven annual awards so did her desire to expand her areas of support. She sponsored the development of the Darlene L. Pfeiffer Center for Entrepreneurial Studies and the highly successful SUNY Ulster Own It! Entrepreneurial Women’s Conference. This month, SUNY Ulster proudly announces the opening of the Pfeiffer Technology and Innovation Lab made possible by a substantial donation from Darlene which has generated over $1M in grant funding for our campus. As our Foundation Board Vice-Chair, she is a tireless advocate and key donor in support of SUNY Ulster, our Foundation, and our students.  Darlene is one of our Foundation’s principal individual donors. 


The St. John Family

The St. John family legacy of business, community, and philanthropy is known throughout the Hudson Valley and at SUNY Ulster.  Howard C. St. John served as Ulster County District Attorney, as a partner in the law firm that bore his name and as chairman of the Board of Ulster Savings Bank.  The St. John family’s advocacy for SUNY Ulster continues with Victoria St. John-Gilligan, who is secretary to the SUNY Ulster Board of Trustees, a member of the Foundation Board, and recognized with her family as a top donor to our Foundation.


Ulster Savings Bank

Ulster Savings Bank and the Ulster Savings Bank Foundation carry on a rich tradition as a community centered organization serving the citizens of the Hudson Valley and are an integral component of SUNY Ulster’s success. Their commitment to capital improvements, technology, and scholarships continue to shape the futures of our students. Ulster Savings Bank and the Ulster Savings Bank Foundation have given over $8.5 million to worthy people and causes throughout the Hudson Valley and are one of our Foundation’s principal corporate donors.
