Members of the Cornelius Walsh Society are among Centenary University’s most generous benefactors. The Society is named for Cornelius Walsh, the first president of the Centenary Board of Trustees, who took hold of the opportunity to shape the University, securing Centenary’s charter, selecting its Hackettstown location and determining the school’s design and funding plans.

The Cornelius Walsh Society was established in 1990 to recognize benefactors who reach the pinnacle of leadership support by making gifts of $1,000 or more to the Centenary Fund. These generous alumni, parents and friends exemplify the ideals of Cornelius Walsh by seizing their own opportunity to change the lives of Centenary University’s students and community. These gifts are vital to the University, as they help advance its most important programs and change the lives of its students in a variety of ways, the better to provide the best possible educational opportunities.
