Nipissing University - (1993 - 1995)
When Nipissing University embarked on their first-ever fundraising campaign, they turned to Vic Fedeli to serve as Co-Chair and lead the campaign. Vic made a $250,000 donation to kick the campaign off. At the time it was the largest donation the University had ever received. The donation was used to build the Vittorio Fedeli Business Centre, in honour of his grandfather. The 125-seat multimedia lecture theatre is still the Ďgo-toí room on the campus.
In addition to Co-Chairing the campaign, Vic maintained an office at the University where he wrote the business plan to raise the funds, and created all of the marketing materials for the entire campaign. Less than $200,000 was spent to raise the $3.7 million required Ė a remarkably low percentage, considering most campaigns are in the 15-20% range. Vic gladly accepted the many university, fundraising, and advertising industry awards that were won for this successful campaign.
Once the fundraising campaign was completed, Vic stayed on at Nipissing as the first Director of the Centre for Northern Business Development; a department he continued to fund.
