September 12, 2014

Carleton University has received a $10 M gift from the Wesley and Mary Nicol Charitable Foundation to support a new building for the Sprott School of Business. The donation will help Carleton kick off a fundraising campaign for the facility. “The Sprott School needs a new home to build on its fine international reputation and foster tomorrow’s business and social leaders,” said Carleton President Roseann O’Reilly Runte. “We are extremely grateful to Wes and Mary for their leadership, which will certainly inspire enthusiasm and investment from many more alumni and members of the Canadian business community.” Wesley Nicol has previously made $1 M donations to Carleton that helped the university establish the Nicol Entrepreneurial Award and the Nicol Entrepreneurial Institute. “Mary and I proud to help build a home where Carleton’s business students can pursue their dreams and graduate with a degree from one of Canada’s best business schools,” he said.
