2021 Donor Highlights


Thank you to our generous donors

This year’s One Day, One Dayton has great momentum due to the generosity of several Flyers whose dedication and love for the University of Dayton shines brightly through all the ways they support the success of our students.

John ’67 and Natalie Alberici

A gift in celebration of this year’s One Day, One Dayton efforts from University of Dayton graduate John Alberici and his wife, Natalie, has led to the creation of the Sustainability Undergraduate Research Fellowship program. The SURF fellowship advances two of the Hanley Sustainability Institute’s priorities — enhancing undergraduate experiences in sustainability and catalyzing transdisciplinary research and scholarship.

Bill ’70 and Jan Tweed

As faithful, multifaceted supporters of the University, alumnus Bill Tweed and his wife Jan, have made two significant gifts to celebrate this year’s One Day, One Dayton efforts. Along with Bill’s fellow fraternity members, they played an instrumental role in creating the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. - Gamma Theta Chapter Endowed Scholarship. As an active member of the School of Engineering advisory council, Bill will also use their gifts to enhance the Engineering Dean’s Fund for Excellence and their other top funding priorities.

James ’75 and Pamela Spinner

Alumnus James and his wife, Pamela, created the Spinner Family Endowed Scholarship to continue the legacy of a supportive community and education to future generations of UD students. The scholarship is unrestricted and supports any UD student with financial need. James graduated from UD with a degree in electrical engineering technology and founded INTEG Systems Corp. in Connecticut in 1996. James and Pamela are supporting the One Day, One Dayton efforts with a challenge gift to encourage others to join them and support UD students.

Fred ’76 and Lisa Tenover

Their One Day, One Dayton gift honors Marianist Brother Donald R. Geiger S.M. ’55, Ph.D., who passed away Dec. 29, 2020. As a student, Fred was mentored and taught by Brother Don. The two later became close friends and colleagues. Brother Don was also a well-respected researcher, author and presenter. The Tenover’s transformational gift established the Brother Don Geiger, S.M., Memorial Fund for Graduate Students, which will support future biology scholars for generations. Dr. Tenover, a Distinguished Alumnus Award recipient, serves as a College of Arts and Sciences Advisory Council member, strategic adviser to the Integrative Science and Engineering (ISE) Center, and consulting professor of Biology at UD.
