A management major at Bryant, David Allardice enjoyed every day of a 33-year career as a financial consultant to municipalities, including 22 years running his own business, Allardice & Associates, Inc., in Canandaigua, New York.

An accomplished woman who holds a Ph.D. from Cornell University, Barbara Allardice serves her undergraduate alma mater, Keuka College, as a member of its Board of Trustees.

Strong supporters of Bryant’s first capital campaign, Mr. and Mrs. Allardice are both members of Bryant’s 1863 Society, which recognizes the year of Bryant’s founding and honors those who have provided for Bryant through their estate plan or a life income gift.

For a decade, Mr. and Mrs. Allardice have supported annual scholarships for several students. They are inspired by the growth and determination of the students, who often seek out their wisdom and experience even after graduation. And the students, who benefit from the scholarships and from this kinship with the couple, have told them how much they appreciated getting to know them.

Mr. and Mrs. Allardice are making plans to endow the Allardice Scholarship so deserving students may continue to learn at Bryant even as the cost of providing an exceptional education continues to rise. The Allardice Scholars will work together on a community service project, getting to know one another and making a connection that will be good for them and good for Bryant.

By providing for Bryant’s future, Barbara and David Allardice are helping to ensure that its legacy is secure and growing.

Bryant University proudly recognizes Barbara and David Allardice as the first recipients of its Outstanding 1863 Society Members award for their enduring commitment to Bryant, helping to transform the lives of generations of students.

Barbara and David Allardice, Bryant University is privileged to call you Friends of the University and Champions for Philanthropy.
