Giving Opportunities in Support of the School of Business

Annual Fund

Each year, the School of Business raises funds to support academic programs, student professional development, faculty development, and special needs of the School by soliciting our alumni through telephone and direct mailing efforts. These annual funds are typically used to support student travel to conferences, student field trips, student research, and the School's operations.

Priority Funding Needs

In addition to these very important annual gifts that are shared through the generosity of alumni and friends, the School of Business has established Priority Funding Needs for major gifts to support student and faculty excellence.

Special Gifts

Special gifts are funds that assist with major needs of the School of Business. These gifts are usually sought during a campaign for a major program initiative, a Center for Excellence, facilities improvement, distinguished professorships, or other major project requiring significant financial support.

Deferred Giving

Deferred giving includes gifts in the form of bequests, trusts, gift annuities, insurance policies, real estate, pension plans, and other accumulated assets. The assistance of a gift planning professional, attorney, banker, trustee, and financial planner may be needed in making these gifts. The Director of Philanthropy can provide valuable assistance in coordinating these professionals and insuring the intended use of the gift.
