2 grateful graduates give $60m to Northeastern

Gift will bolster business school

Two Northeastern University dropouts who went on to earn their degrees after encourage­ment from a mentoring professor are teaming up to donate $60 million to the university, a record gift aimed at shaping the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators.

The two said they hope their donation inspires others who have been helped by Northeastern to give back to the school. Richard D’Amore, cofounder of North Bridge Venture Partners in Waltham, and Alan McKim — founder of Clean Harbors, an environmental, energy, and industrial services provider in Norwell — are both university trustees.
