It all starts here.
L. Ralph Boynton 32BBA, of the Boynton Auditorium, made his first gift of $10 in 1968. Marc Adler 95BBA 96MBA, of the Adler Classrooms and the Adler teaching prize, made his first gift of $25 in 1996. The 2013 MBA Scholarship has had more than 100 alumni donors contribute to a goal of $100,000, the Emory endowment threshold. Not everyone can name a room or a scholarship...today, but we can all make a difference with a yearly gift at level that is meaningful now. Made of small gifts that together make a big impact, annual funds are the foundation of giving.
Annual participation in alumni giving also effects our rankings, and it increases the value of your degree over time. Just as you would maintain a home after the initial purchase in hopes of value appreciation, your annual gift to Goizueta elevates our worth and keeps us competitive with peer institutions. Annual funds at Goizueta are:
- Available to fund new initiatives, such as those from the strategic plan
- Accessible every year
- Able to provide flexibility in meeting immediate needs
- A crucial tool in recruiting top talent on both the student and faculty side
Learn more about Goizueta's top giving priorities below and make your gift today. While some of the below funds can be found in the drop-down menu, others can be written-in in the box labeled "Specific Designation".
Don't forget, many donors can double or triple their contribution through a corporate match!
Business Fund for Excellence
The flexibility of these unrestricted gifts provide opportunities for our students to take full advantage of innovative programs, education, and scholarships that maximize their experience here.
BBA/MBA/EvMBA/EMBA Program Funds
Gifts to a program fund at Goizueta Business School will be used at the discretion of the program dean to support an initiative or program they have set as a priority.
Gifts to need and merit-based scholarships are among the most important to the academic life on campus, as they make it possible for us to attract students from the widest possible range of experiences and backgrounds. Gifts to scholarships allow standout applicants to achieve their highest potential.
