In 2009, the Foundation joined forces with Wagner College to advance the educational options on Staten Island by supporting the development of a new modern residential building on the campus.

Foundation Hall was the first new residence facility to be constructed on Wagner College’s 105-acre campus in more than 40 years (opened in January of 2010). The new four-storybuilding was designed specifically as a residence for fourth-year students and houses the Bridges Program which helps seniors transition to life after college. The building offers dormitory-style apartments and suites for 192 students and a high-tech class/conference center where Senior-Year Residence Experience seminars and other institutional meetings can be held. Wagner’s need for the new facility was driven by its transformation over the past decade from a college where a majority of students were local commuters, into an institution where about 75 percent of undergraduates live on campus.
