Nichols College Scores a $5 million Gift

Wednesday, December 26, 2012


An anonymous donor has made this a very Happy Holidays for Nichols College by making a $5 million gift.

Nichols College President Susan West Engelkemeyer announced that Nichols College has received an unrestricted gift of $5 million from an anonymous donor.

In making the announcement, Engelkemeyer said, along with the opening of The Fels Student Center, “this historic gift from an alumnus has the potential to transform the College and was inspired by the commitment of the entire Nichols community, who continually invest in this special place on the Hill.”

“We are excited to build upon this positive momentum and look forward to creating more opportunities for our students in the years to come,” Engelkemeyer said.

Nichols is working to match the interests of the donor, who is a Worcester native, with any number of initiatives identified in the new strategic plan that will bring Nichols closer to its vision as the school approaches its bicentennial in 2015.

“A gift of this magnitude will have sweeping consequences, not only for the possibilities it opens for Nichols during this important time in our history but also for the potential of this generous investment in the College to inspire others,” noted Nichols Vice President for Advancement William Pieczynski. “This marks a new and exciting day for Nichols.”
