Dr. Donna J.
has received a grant of $10,000 from the Henry and Henrietta Quade
Foundation to increase scholarship funds at the College. The gift
extends the resources of the Henry and Henrietta Quade Scholarship
Fund, which was established in 1998 with a gift of $250,000 from the
Quade Foundation. The Quade scholarships provide financial support
for outstanding applicants to encourage them to make NYUCD their dental
school of choice.
In announcing the gift, Dean Alfano commended the efforts of Dr. Donna
J. Rumberger, Class of 1980, who serves as an officer of the Quade
Foundation. “Dr. Rumberger epitomizes the caring dentist,” said Dean
Alfano, “and the vitality of the Henry and Henrietta Quade Scholarship
Fund is a tribute both to her great devotion to the memory of the
Quades, who were her patients, and to her commitment to alma mater.”
