SUNY Ulster Foundation Annual Gala
The SUNY Ulster Foundation Annual Gala is a fundraiser and recognition event honoring outstanding individuals, organizations, businesses, and friends of SUNY Ulster. The mission of the SUNY Ulster Foundation is to benefit the amazing SUNY Ulster students. Basch & Keegan is proud to be a sponsor of this wonderful event every year!
As many know, Basch & Keegan has deep roots in Kingston and a lengthy history of giving back to Ulster County. Our partners are Eli B. Basch, Maureen A. Keegan, Derek J. Spada, and Foundation Board Director and Vice Chair, John A. DeGasperis. John DeGasperis was inducted into the SUNY Ulster Alumni Hall of Fame. Eli and the late Susan Basch are Life in Legacy donors who have created the Susan Raymond Basch and Eli Basch Scholarship endowment. John and Emily DeGasperis recently completed their second sponsorship of the President’s Challenge Scholarship with both sponsorships in Kingston City School District. Derek and Rana Spada are President’s Challenge Scholarship sponsors in the Onteora School District.
Maureen Keegan, Eli Basch, John DeGasperis and Derek Spada have all been benefactors to the SUNY Ulster Foundation through their substantial corporate sponsorships of the annual Gala as well as multiple party sponsorships of the President’s Challenge Scholarship. We are honored to be a part of this community every year and will continue our legacy.
