NORWICH RECORD | Summer 2021

As an undergraduate, I never understood how our alumni could be so generous to an institution where they had also paid tuition. I was as a cash-strapped college student. Why would I give? It just never resonat¬ed with me. Then I spent two and a half years working in the Class Giving Office at Norwich talking to alumni every day. Again and again, I heard firsthand why they chose to give back our university and what inspired them. It finally clicked for me. While all of their stories were different, they helped me find my reason to give: to provide oppor¬tunity. Without the help of gener¬ous donors, I wouldn’t have had the chance to attend Norwich or to spend my career today working for the world’s leading digital fund¬raising platform for nonprofit edu¬cational institutions—GiveCampus in Washington, D.C. Norwich creat¬ed that opportunity for me. It is the starting point for so many alumni stories. Today, I give back, because every gift to Norwich, no matter how small, increases the number of opportunities for future students. Every gift is the start of a new story. That is my why. I give back, because education changes lives, one oppor¬tunity at a time.
