WHY I GIVE
JOE BONILLA, BA '11
Managing Partner, Relentless Awareness
I would not have had the level of career success without my education from Rockefeller College. I want to make sure that the same world-class education I received is available for the next generation. — Joe Bonilla, BA '11
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO SUPPORT ROCKEFELLER COLLEGE?
"The opportunities that Rockefeller College students have — given the college's location at the nexus of where New York State government and politics intertwine, along with Rockefeller's incredible semester-long program in Washington, D.C. — provide the necessary and forward-looking preparation for success. Students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels are able to tap into a world of resources, relationships, and connections through the college's dedicated alumni and partner network. It is through my education at Rockefeller that I am able to better counsel clients on how to navigate the ins and outs of the 'public conversation' — how policy and initiatives are created and how to harness public opinion to move an issue forward. I'm proud to serve on the Dean's Advisory Board as it further connects me to the mission and vision of how Rockefeller College impacts not only our state, but the world. I encourage you to help Rockefeller College prepare the next generation of policymakers and public service professionals."
