opportunity to make a significant commitment to the uniqueness of
the St. John’s University experience as reflected in our Vincentian
mission and values resonates strongly for many of our alumni and
friends. For a select few, membership in The Founders Society,
reserved exclusively for donors who have made gifts totaling $1
million or more to the University, represents the culmination of a
lifetime of generosity that goes well beyond the norm.
St. John’s University President Rev. Donald J. Harrington, C.M.
inducted six new individuals into this prestigious organization in
2010. The most recent members of The Founders Society include
William J. Janetschek, Jr. ’84CBA, Fioravante Perrotta, Esq. ’52C,
’55L, ’02HON, Michael (’91SVC) and Maria Repole and Brian (’83CBA)
and Patricia Shea ’83C.
The University is grateful to these and all of the members of
The Founders Society whose commitment to serving others in the
spirit of St. Vincent de Paul has translated into an exceptional
sense of giving.
