DONORS STEP UP BIG FOR NICHOLLS

The budget is tight at Nicholls, but donors from around the country pitched in to help the university out in its tough situation.

Nicholls hosted its Give-N-Day fundraiser on March 27 – a day designed to rally support for the university through online donations.

In total, 820 donors stepped up to pledge more than 1,100 total donations totaling more than $75,000 of much-needed funds for the university.

Donations were received from 26 states, including California, New Jersey, Florida and Hawaii. A donor also pledged from the United Kingdom.

In total, Colonel Catholics were the big winners in the day, collecting $6,460, but other organizations won big, as well, including the Nicholls Alumni Federation ($5,426), Nicholls’ College of Education ($4,395), Nicholls’ Bridge to Independence Program ($4,235) and the Nicholls Worth ($3,885).

“I’m ecstatic with the results of our first Give-N-Day. This was a success,” said Jeremy Becker, the executive director of the Nicholls Foundation. “We had tremendous student buy-in. They really enjoyed the process and their organizations are going to benefit. They’re already asking about next year.”
