Frank S. Hackett Planned Giving Society

The Frank S. Hackett Planned Giving Society recognizes the generosity and foresight of our alumni, parents, and friends who have included Riverdale in their wills or other estate plans. To become a member, please inform Robin Gottlieb in the Development Office ( or 718-519-2703) of your documented intentions. We welcome the opportunity to list you along with our other Hackett Society members in online and printed materials, including the Annual Report of Gifts, and to invite you to special events throughout the year. Additionally, we recognize that not all of our donors wish to make their intentions public, so will of course respect your wishes should you choose to remain anonymous.
