Annie and Dan Berce, alumni of Regis University in Denver have donated $1.4 million to the school’s athletics program to build a premiere practice facility to provide additional training space and accommodations for student athletes.
The Berce Athletic Center will be a multi-functional practice facility featuring two full basketball courts, volleyball courts, auxiliary centers for athletics training, strength and conditioning and more, the university said in a news release.
Dan Berce earned his accounting degree at Regis in 1975 and Annie Berce earned a degree in business administration in 1977.
“We are thrilled to be able to make this gift, especially since it will directly benefit students and student athletes,” said Dan Berce, who serves on the Board of Trustees at Regis. “Access to quality athletic facilities is an important part of the Regis experience.”
Regis University, established in 1877, is an institution of higher learning in the Jesuit Catholic tradition that prepares leaders to live productive lives of faith, meaning and service. It is one of 28 Jesuit universities in the nation, with four campus locations in the Denver metro area and another in Colorado Springs.
Dan Berce has served as president and CEO of GM Financial in Fort Worth since 2005. Previously, he served as president from 2003-2005 and as the company’s chief financial officer from 1990 to 2003. GM Financial is the captive auto finance company for General Motors.
