The John Ramsey Leadership Society
Launched in 2022, the John Ramsey Leadership Society recognizes Stony Brook Athletics’ most ardent and generous supporters, whose generosity goes above and beyond in transforming the lives of Stony Brook student-athletes.
The Ramsey Leadership Society is comprised of donors who make major gift commitments to any departmental priority. Members are recognized in the Society for five years from the date of their commitment, and donors have the flexibility to choose to support any Sport-Specific Fund for Excellence, Seawolves United Unrestricted Giving, or any current department capital project, endowment, or scholarship need.
The Society is named after legendary Stony Brook coach and administrator, John Ramsey. Ramsey is a 1999 Stony Brook Athletics Hall of Fame inductee and is one of the most recognizable names in the history of Stony Brook Athletics. He served the university for more than 35 years as both a coach and an administrator. Ramsey most notably founded Stony Brook's Men’s Soccer program and was Stony Brook’s first Division of Physical Education and Athletic Director.
RLS members receive high-end, exclusive stewardship opportunities, including regular Zoom calls with Stony Brook’s Director of Athletics and recognition within the athletics facilities and at home football, basketball and lacrosse games.
