Former BC student athletes give back

A number of former BC student athletes are demonstrating their support for the University by contributing a total of $29 million to the Ever to Excel Campaign. Nineteen of these alumni have made leadership gifts of $100,000 or more.

Football, hockey, basketball, track, and golf are represented by the alumni athletes who have made leadership gift contributions. These donors range by class from 1950 through 1987. Five leadership gifts have come from alumni who graduated in the 1980s alone.

Longtime donor Scott A. Gieselman '85, MS'88, a member of the 1985 Cotton Bowl team, committed $100,000 to the proposed varsity athletic center. Gieselman garnered many honors during his career at Boston College and currently serves as a managing director for Goldman Sachs in Houston.

Many of these alumni attribute their personal and professional success to their start at Boston College. As Gene DeFilippo, BC's athletic director, notes, "The individuals who have been most generous to us appreciated the athletic scholarship that brought them to BC. Their discipline and hard work continued through their college years and sustained them as they built their careers. Now, they are enjoying success, and BC is fortunate to benefit from their kindness."
