SUNY Broome Receives $10 Million Gift

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

SUNY Broome Community College officials say the school has received the biggest donation in its history.

A $10 million gift from a Binghamton man who died last winter was announced today at the Decker Health Sciences Center on the town of Dickinson campus.

The donation was made by Emil Calice, who worked for IBM over a span of 47 years. Calice was 89 when he died in February.

SUNY Broome officials say the gift will be used to establish a scholarship fund to provide need-based financial aid to students.

The Broome Community College Foundation is to administer the scholarship program.

The gift is believed to be one of the largest ever presented to a community college in the State University of New York system.
