Lessons Learned at Princeton Motivate Generosity

July 23rd, 2013 / Gift Planning

Paul and Betsy SittenfeldPaul Sittenfeld ’69’s commitment to education inspires him to help others have the same experience. A devoted Princeton alumnus (veteran of numerous volunteer posts, including 40 years as class secretary) and parent (two of four children are Princetonians), Sittenfeld enthusiastically maintains his orange-and-black connections. He and his wife, Betsy, created a Princeton charitable lead trust to further strengthen University bonds and assist their family.


  • Provide educational opportunities to future Princetonians
  • Invest in a well-managed fund

Sittenfeld’s trust has supported his class’s Annual Giving Endowment and the Alexander P. G. ’07, Josephine B. ’02, and Paul G. Sittenfeld ’69 Family Scholarship. When the trust ends, it will benefit the Sittenfelds’ children and may help fund their grandchildren’s college educations.
