We are so grateful to the generous donors who are making our Giving Day challenges possible!
A longtime supporter and friend of Northeastern, Henry Nasella, UC’77, H’08, is co-founder and partner at LNK Partners, a private equity firm focused on consumer and retail businesses. A trustee since 1995, he has served on nearly every board committee, joining the university’s board in 1995 and currently acting as its chair.
In addition, Nasella has also been a generous benefactor of many of the university’s most vital initiatives. And, as a Giving Day challenge donor, he will be supporting a variety of crucial funding priorities benefitting students and faculty across the university.“It is an immense privilege for me to help lead the university’s evolution as a premier global research institution, largely because I see the great impact Northeastern is having on the world,” Nasella explains. “And, through events like Giving Day, we’re here to help secure Northeastern’s future.”
Alan and Carol Mateo
Thanks to the generosity of Northeastern parents Alan and Carol Mateo, students at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business who are developing their own ventures will soon have an added source of support through a dedicated prototype fund. “We wanted to support Northeastern students who have the fortitude not only to develop an idea, but to really get after it,” Alan explains.
Inspired by the professional experiences and networks their daughters have accessed through Northeastern, the Mateos were driven to support a fund that symbolized Northeastern’s hands on approach to learning. “Experiential education keeps things grounded, and that’s why we’re so eager to support students’ ideas at the prototype phase. Our daughters have been given the skills they need to thrive, and we wanted more students to be able to take advantage of the university’s incredibly rich entrepreneurial and experiential ecosystem,” he adds.
