The Family Philanthropy Roadmap
Gifts of all kinds increase the power of our Northeastern community
We encourage each student to create their own path to success; sometimes the journey will look like an interstate highway, while other times it will look like winding back roads. To that end, we want our Husky families to experience their own journey, from Convocation to Commencement. Here is a sample roadmap for your philanthropic relationship with the university.
THE JOURNEY BEGINS
John and Kendra Malloy
$125,000 to The Department of Chemical Engineering
John and Kendra Malloy, whose son Liam is in the College of Engineering class of 2024, generously gave $25,000 to the Department of Chemical Engineering during their son’s freshman year to support opportunities for student growth. Their support enabled students to attend a prestigious Chemical Engineering conference to compete in the Chem-E-Car competition. Then, during Liam’s sophomore year, they pledged an additional $100,000.
