The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has announced its 2021 Circle of Excellence Awards. Nick Gould, ’09, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement, received a Bronze Award in the Fundraising category.
Wrote the nominator, “Three years ago, [Nick] was the only person to go after planned giving, drafting a plan for a campaign and running it by himself. Dubbed the ‘Macfadden Legacy Challenge’ after Board of Trustees members Jim, ’62, and Holly, ‘64, Macfadden, Gould successfully raised $5,918,082—a significant feat, considering the university’s average of raising $3 to $5 million per year. Today, the university benefits from the ongoing impact of Gould’s leadership. In Fiscal Year 2020, the university collected the second highest total in new gifts and payments on former pledges, totaling nearly $12 million.
The CASE judges said, “Thoughtful approach and builds upon distinctive characteristics of Gallaudet to appeal to donors most capable and connected to make a legacy impact. We like that this is outside of the box and demonstrates the creative impact one staff person can have on overall fundraising goals.”Read the entire award description. Heartiest congratulations to Nick on this stellar accomplishment, and best wishes for continued success!
