The MICHELLI FAMILY FOUNDATION is actively involved with supporting education, athletics and the arts through Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey.
Monmouth University is a dynamic, private university that empowers students to become leaders who are able to make significant contributions to their community and society.
The Michelli’s completed a quarter million dollar funding of the Monmouth University Radio Studio… a major portion of the Plangere Center for Communications and Instructional Technology.
They were also donors to the development of The MAC (currently named OceanFirst Bank Center). Located at the center of Monmouth University’s beautiful 156-acre campus, this state-of-the art $57 million 153,200-square-foot ‘MAC’ (an acronym for Multipurpose Activity Center) houses a 4,100-seat arena; a 200-meter, six-lane indoor track; locker rooms; educational and conference space; ground-level University Store; and modern fitness center.
Most recently, in memory of their late son Raymond Michelli, they have been donors to the accessible ADA seating sections of the new $15 million Kessler Stadium. Kessler Stadium is the home of Hawks Football, Men’s & Women’s Lacrosse and Men’s & Women’s Outdoor Track & Field. The stadium opened in Fall 2017.
An endowed scholarship has been created at Monmouth University in honor of Raymond Michelli, to be awarded to a Department of Communication major with an interest in sports announcing. For more info read: Ray Michelli Endowed Scholarship Recognizes Excellences in Sports Broadcasting
