FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey couple has donated $10 million to the University of Notre Dame, which will rename a college center for them.

Notre Dame says the gift from Anthony and Christie de Nicola, a Franklin Lakes couple, will allow them to expand the reach of the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture. NorthJersey.com reports Anthony de Nicola is the president and managing partner of Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, a private New York investment firm and Christie de Nicola has served on the board of St. Elizabeth Home School Association in Wyckoff.

Two of their children are alumni of the Indiana university. O. Carter Snead, director of the newly-named center, said the de Nicolas have been "instrumental" in supporting the center throughout his tenure.
