The Ginger Judge '51 Alumni Gift Challenge

Endicott Alumni secured the $500,000 Ginger Judge ’51 Alumni Gift Challenge!

Ginger Judge '51, Alumni Gift Challenge


On June 30, 2014, the close of Endicott’s fiscal year, history was made.  For the first time ever, alumni had the opportunity to participate in a generous gift challenge.  Ginger Judge ’51, Alumna and Trustee, committed to giving Endicott $500,000 if Endicott Alumni would contribute an equal amount by June 30.  We are pleased and grateful to share that the Challenge gift has been secured and Endicott will receive the $500,000 gift from Ginger Judge.  Over 2,700 alumni participated in the Challenge, and in a huge surge at the end, a total of $557,492 was raised.  Thank you to each and every donor who participated in this historic gift challenge.  It would not have been possible without you.

A special message from Ginger Judge ’51,

Endicott College is very important to me, and I am pleased that so many Endicott alumni joined me this year in supporting the College.  I am grateful to be able to generously support Endicott and appreciate all of those who rose up this year to make a contribution to Endicott to secure this Challenge gift. 

As a Trustee of the College, I see the difference an Endicott education is making for students from around the globe, and I wanted to encourage others to give as generously as they were able to support Endicott’s academic mission.  I am overwhelmed by the response to this Challenge, and am grateful to everyone who supported Endicott – you made a very big difference in choosing to make your gift. 

I hope Endicott’s alumni will continue to support the College for many years into the future.  Alumni support is very important and helps Endicott serve students who are deserving of a quality education in the Endicott tradition of service and internship.  Congratulations, Endicott!
