March 2015 Alumni Gift Challenge

 500 gifts, 31 Days, $100,000 – Thank you!

What an exciting month this was!  Thank you to all the Endicott alumni who took part in the March Alumni Gift Challenge.  You were determined to make sure Endicott secured the Challenge gift from the Alumni Trustees.

When we announced the Challenge on March 1st, it was planned that Endicott would secure a $100,000 gift from the Alumni Trustees if Endicott received 500 gifts from Alumni in the 31 days of March 2015.  By the end of the month, and because of your enthusiasm, the Alumni Trustees increased their gift to $125,000, and Endicott will receive this gift because 724 gifts were received in March!  Each donor and each gift made the difference.  Thank you!

You did it!

The number of alumni who philanthropically contribute to Endicott each year is as important as the dollars we raise.  Alumni gift participation in supporting Endicott is a sign of your belief in the College.  Alumni participation is considered in many national college and university rankings, including the popular US News & World Report.  It was exciting to have the Alumni Trustees celebrate alumni participation and recognizing the importance of each and every donor through this March Alumni Gift Challenge.  Thank you for taking the Challenge and for supporting Endicott.

While the March Alumni Gift Challenge has come to an end, Endicott’s fiscal year remains open until June 30.  We appreciate the number of alumni who asked their friends to join them in supporting Endicott for this Challenge.  We hope you continue to encourage friends and classmates to consider their support as the fiscal year ends in a couple of months.
