Celebrating a family’s exceptional support

“These bright young people return from the Peace Corps after serving in some of the most challenging places on Earth…They have been tested, and yet they continue to show their determination to make the world better as great teachers.”

Over the past 30 years, TC Trustee Emeritus Elliot Jaffe and his wife, Roslyn, have generously supported more than 750 Jaffe Peace Corps Fellows through TC’s Peace Corps Fellows Program — the first graduate program in the country to provide scholarship for volunteers returning from Peace Corps service. This summer, the Peace Corps and TC celebrated the impact of the Jaffe’s support that, with a recent $2 million gift, brings their total giving to the College to $5.4 million.
