Major Gifts

From Ken Goebel:

The following gifts are indicative of how we’ll be able to do even more with our students in the coming years!

  • $25,000 from Kim and Crystal Cocklin in support of our undergraduate and faculty research. I worked with the Cocklins and a certain science faculty member on this gift.
  • $445,000 from Bart Swett, PhD ’56 as a bequest intention to fund a scholarship in the visual and performing arts. Dr. Huot and I helped Dr. Swett complete his thoughts on his bequest and make this commitment.
  • $100,000 from Dr. Howard Smith ’42 to fund a scholarship for an undergraduate or graduate student at KSC. Dr. Huot and Sean Gillery helped Dr Smith make this commitment.
  • $5,000 from the Friends of the Thorne to jump start the fundraising initiative for the Thorne-Sagendorph 50th Anniversary in 2015. This was a final installment of a $13,000 pledge from the Friends for the 50th Celebration! Andy Harris, Maryann Lindberg, and Maureen Ahearn were all helpful in the relationship with the Friends.
  • $40,000 bequest intention from a devoted staff member and spouse to fund two new scholarship funds for first generation students. It’s fun to see a plan come together!

My thanks to everyone who works every day on the relationships between the College and our donors that lead to the next set of gifts that “pay it forward!”
