Alumni Couple Invests in College of Business

An alumni couple has contributed $1.67 million to the Bloomsburg University Foundation — the largest philanthropic gift in foundation history.

Terry Zeigler ’76, president and CEO of Datacap Systems Inc., Chalfont, and his wife, JoAnn Schultz Zeigler ’77, are sponsoring the Zeigler Institute for Professional Development (ZIPD) within BU’s College of Business. The institute will focus on professionalism and the interconnectedness of functional business areas.

Terry Zeigler’s experiences as the co-founder of a small company convinced the couple of the importance of interconnected business education. Zeigler was in his 20s when he and two partners started Datacap Systems. Blending individual expertise in operations, business and engineering, the firm has become the leading supplier in its market niche, enjoying 28 years of continued growth and financial success
