Honor Roll of Donors a 2020


Bison Strong

In a year filled with uncertainty, the loyal support of our donors has been one of the few constants. Amid a global pandemic, when Nichols was forced to abruptly pivot to remote learning and upend a traditional spring semester on the Hill, our donors – many of whom faced health and financial concerns of their own – continued to give. Your gifts served as words of encouragement and votes of confidence at a time when the campus community was sorely in need of both. For your recognition of our efforts to ensure the success of our mission during a challenging and unsettling period, we offer ours in this 2020 Honor Roll of Donors. Your rallying support was especially noted during this year’s March Match, the annual month-long matching challenge sponsored by Trustee John McClutchy Jr. ’72. When the pandemic struck at the campaign’s midpoint, we wondered if we could reach the $100,000 goal. Once again, our donors exceeded the goal, in addition to the $50,000 goal set in September 2019 for our first annual athletics-only Bison Blitz matching campaign. In the 2020 honor roll, you’ll read more about the year’s giving highlights, including a $2 million gift to the college’s endowment. One of the more inspiring stories comes from the Class of 2020 who, despite the many disappointments they faced during their final semester at Nichols, opted to donate their class gift to the Bison Care Fund to aid fellow students. A gesture that attests to the resiliency of our Bison. As we prepared for the worst this year, you have continually shown us your best. We can face uncertainty with the assurance and generosity of our donors behind us.

Graduation gesture kicks off Bison Care Fund Members of the Class of 2020 didn’t quite get the final semester they imagined. All the rites of spring – countdown socials, Bison Fest, a formal graduation – were lost to the restrictions of an unimaginable pandemic. What seniors found, however, was the compassion to help their fellow Bison who needed it most. In April, soon after the college launched the Bison Care Fund to support additional financial aid needs for Nichols College students hardest hit by the impact of the COVID-19 12

pandemic, the graduating class offered to designate all donations raised toward a senior gift to the fund. This gesture, in turn, inspired other alumni to contribute. By June, more than $200,000 was raised to

help those students whose financial circumstances have been greatly affected by the pandemic. The Class of 2020 has left a legacy of generosity and may even one day be remembered for starting a new spring tradition at Nichols.

Nichols College receives $2 million gift to boost endowment In February 2020, Nichols College received a $2 million contribution toward its endowment from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous. Funds generated from the gift will be designated to a scholarship for local students and a variety of academic initiatives. “We are so grateful to the donor for this display of enormous generosity,” said Susan West Engelkemeyer, Ph.D., president of Nichols College. “This gift will advance our mission of transforming lives through expanded educational and experiential opportunities for our career-focused students. It ensures our continued success as a college of choice for business and leadership education.” The gift will support experiential learning, such as the professional consulting projects students undertake with regional businesses, and an endowed scholarship for students in southern Worcester County. Additional support provided by the donor will augment the Student-Managed Investment Fund, which was created last fall through donations from three alumni. “This generous gift will provide critical endowment support and solidify our position of strength at a time of uncertainty in higher education,” said John H. Davis ’72, who is the chair of the Board of Trustees and co-chair of the Bicentennial Campaign. “Most importantly, it will increase experiential opportunities for our students to give them a competitive edge.”
