NSU's Donor Connection - March 2016: REALIZING POTENTIAL

NSU's Jennifer O'Flannery Anderson March 2016YOU helped publicly launch the largest fundraising effort in the history of NSU and Broward County!

On January 31st at NSU's Celebration of Excellence, Dr. Hanbury announced that we surpassed the midpoint of our goal to raise $250 million through philanthropy by 2020! This is part of Dr. Hanbury's Vision 2020 goal of raising more than half a billion dollars in external support for NSU–$250 million in philanthropy and $300 million in sponsored research, service, and training projects.

We also honored the Miniaci Family (Rose, Dominick and Meike, and Albert and Beatriz) for excellence in community service and recognized seven Shark Circle donors whose lifetime giving to NSU exceeds $1 million: The Alters Family, Bonnie Laitman Eletz and the William & Mildred Lasdon Foundation, Dr. Stanley and Pearl Goodman, Suzanne and the late Dr. Paul Hersey, Mike and Alice Jackson, Albert and Beatriz Miniaci, and Kenny and Sandy Tate and family.

Their support and yours advances the mission of the only doctoral research institution based in Broward County and connecting with scholars regionally across Florida, in Puerto Rico, and online globally.

In this issue, we introduce three NSU Sharks who never stop moving forward. Scott Parker, Jr., a young alumnus, made an annual gift, a legacy gift, and a matching gift to support Realizing Potential – The Campaign for Nova Southeastern University. Brielle Rassler is a psychology doctoral student who is continuing to “customize” her education at NSU. And alumna Nilda Banchs, Pharm.D., is a pharmacy owner in Puerto Rico who dedicates time and treasure to develop, through NSU, the next generation of industry leaders for her island. Their stories make me proud and excited to be involved in this momentous collaboration.

If you have an idea(s) for realizing potential through NSU, please share your thoughts with me via email, or the next time we see each other. I welcome the chance to talk with you."
