The first annual #EndicottGivingDay, fueled by Endicott Trustee, Erika Angle, and her husband, Colin, was an overwhelming and inspirational success.

We did it!

Thanks to your tremendous support, Endicott made history with the College's first-ever Giving Day on March 6. The result was 2,000-plus donations totaling over $139,000, including more than $50,000 in challenge funds from Endicott Trustee, Erika Angle, and her husband, Colin.

Thank you for making Endicott's first-ever Giving Day a huge success.

Endicott Giving Day helped raise funds that will enhance
programming across the entire campus.

Giving Day

Backed by the generosity of Erika, CEO of Ixcela: The Internal Fitness™ Company and founder of Science from Scientists, and Colin, CEO and co-founder of iRobot, Giving Day inspired an Endicott community of alumni, parents, family, friends, and student body to unite in this 24-hour challenge for a common cause—Endicott College.

Whether it was scholarship funding, academic schools or programs, internship and career services, sports teams, student resources, clubs and organizations, or something else, every one of our donors gave back to a personalized cause that impacted them. All facets of our community’s operations will benefit greatly in the future thanks to our donors on Giving Day.

“There isn’t a sense of complacency at Endicott,” said Erika Angle, prior to the start of the Giving Day challenge. “Trends are monitored and programs are updated to ensure that students have the opportunities that they are looking for.”

Belief in Endicott’s Entrepreneurial Spirit

The Angles, since 2012, have been integral parts of the Endicott community and with the Colin & Erika Angle Center for Entrepreneurship, established a home that teaches, coaches, and inspires students to pursue innovation and creativity.

The Center has served as a living laboratory for students across multiple areas of study to collaborate on business ideas, like CropShop, a product of Endicott’s annual Spark Tank competition organized by FUEL. Spark Tank 2019, sponsored by TD Bank, will be held on Monday, April 29 as entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch their businesses to angel investors and compete for a $10,000 prize.
