Profiles in Giving

Lloyd W. Pote, E37

About him

Lloyd W. Pote, E37, is rebuilding a vintage staggerwing biplane in his workshop in Sturbridge, MA. His grandson, Gregory P. Murphy, A06, has been helping him with this multi-year project. Lloyd credits his alma mater with his career success because he was able to pursue a double major in mechanical and electrical engineering.

Why he gives

Tufts, both literally and figuratively, helped Pote to soar. "I have chosen to support Tufts during my lifetime and through my estate plans because a Tufts education does not end at graduation."

His most recent gift

Lloyd, his business partner and fellow Tufts alumnus Charles P. Ciaffone, E41, and other employees at their company, CPC Engineering, created the Charles P. Ciaffone and Lloyd W. Pote Scholarship for deserving engineering students at Tufts. Lloyd also joined with family and friends to establish the Frank W. Pote Memorial Fund to financially assist deserving students majoring in physics in memory of his father who taught physics at Tufts from 1912 to 1953. Lloyd has included a bequest in his estate plans to support the memorial fund.
