The Harold Alfond Foundation has donated $100,000 to Saint Joseph's College in honor of the leadership of President David House during the campaign to build a new academic building, Harold Alfond Hall, completed in 2004. House left the college in mid-May after 12 years. In a letter to the outgoing president, Harold Alfond praised House's terri?c contributions and exceptional service to Saint Joseph's. Under the House presidency, four major buildings were constructed and one major addition/expansion was completed. During this time, House also oversaw development of two strategic plans and two master plans.
Harold Alfond has been a major donor to the college during its expansion over the last 10 years, and he was the lead contributor for both the academic building and recreation center that carry his name. Several of his donations were issued as challenge grants to spark matching funds for the college's growth, and, in each case, successful campaigns raised the additional matching money. We thank Harold Alfond for his ongoing generosity.
