Raymond J. Fallon '58: A Bequest That Helps Ensure a Legacy
Raymond J. Fallon '58 and his wife, Priscilla, always wanted to give back to Bryant. After they passed away in February 2012, Bryant received a charitable bequest of nearly $225,000 in unrestricted funds, which will be directed to the university's most critical needs.
Raymond, who was an auditor for the State of Rhode Island for many years, earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Bryant in 1958 and later became a licensed public accountant.
"The Fallons' bequest is very much appreciated," says Ed Magro, Bryant's executive director of development. "We know that for many alumni, donations in the form of bequests tend to be ‘gifts of a lifetime' intended to support organizations like Bryant that had a significant impact on the life of the donor and that which they hold most near and dear," he says.
"With this generous bequest to Bryant, Raymond and Priscilla secured their own legacy while also helping to ensure that Bryant's legacy is secure today and well into the future."
