The Annual Report to Donors acknowledges all those who have made gifts to the Stonehill College Fund from July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011.
The 250 students who call the new $21.4 million, five-story residence hall home are living in the most environmentally sensitive building on Stonehill’s campus.
With gratitude, we proudly recognize the alumni, parents, and friends who supported the Attaining the Summit Campaign and the Stonehill College Fund in Fiscal Year 2010.
Stonehill's Attaining the Summit Campaign came to a close in June, raising a record-setting $59.5 million and on Thursday, September 23, the College celebrated its success inside the Pettit Atrium of the Shields Science Center.
Attaining the Summit, Stonehill's second major fundraising campaign, set out in July, 2004, to raise $55 million. It concluded with a bang in June 2010, raising a record-setting $59.5 million, more than doubling the $23.1 million raised in Stonehill's last campaign, Securing the Vision (1992-1997).
President and CEO of W.B. Mason Leo Meehan '75 made a surprise announcement that the Company was donating an additional $1 million to the Attaining the Summit Campaign propelling the campaign past the $55 million goal.
Stonehill receives a state-of-the-art instrument used by such organizations as the National Cancer Institute, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as well as the world's leading pharmaceutical firms.
With environmental sustainability at the forefront of Stonehill's objectives, the College recently donated furniture from its Merkert-Tracy Science Center to Community Care Services.
The opening of the Shields Science Center has been a welcome addition to the Stonehill community and since the start of the semester the Center’s social space, the Peggy and Ray Pettit Atrium, has been bustling with activity.
Tom Shields has made a lot of money in his life. He also has given away a lot - the most recent gift being $7 million to Stonehill College in Easton as part of its $55 million capital campaign to fund scholarships, athletics and a new science center.
The College dedicated the Atrium in the new Science Center in honor of longtime friends and benefactors Peggy and Ray Pettit on Saturday, Sept. 12.
