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

Daniel Desevo 97C Memorial Scholarship Endowment
Endowed scholarship is awarded each year to a BBA from the Tri-State (NY, NJ, PA) area in memory of Daniel DeSevo, 97C. This award is based on merit, leadership and financial need.
Life is short. Yet each day presents an opportunity to affect others' lives and leave a legacy that transcends time. So it is with Daniel DeSevo 97C, who touched many lives before his death in 2000. His friends and family never run short of adjectives to describe the energetic young man from Red Bank, New Jersey: caring, compassionate, intelligent, kind, brave, athletic, self-sacrificing, a leader by example, and so on.
At Emory, he was president of his fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi. Despite his youth, he had already visited more than twenty countries, including one full semester spent studying in Spain. After completing his second year of law school at Georgetown, he had secured a future slot with a prominent New York law firm.
Then disaster struck. The talented and promising young man was diagnosed with leukemia; the world of ivy-covered buildings replaced by drab hospital halls and endless chemotherapy. He died a year and one month later at age 24. In his final months, Daniel remained an inspiration to everyone around him. "He led by example," remembers his father Frank, also an attorney. Daniel was known to leave the hospital in New York on nice days, IV pole included, to do a little shopping or take his girlfriend to dinner, says his dad.
Georgetown classmates remembered Daniel by giving a clock in the University's library. His family and friends at Emory have chosen to honor his memory with a $50,000 endowed scholarship at Goizueta Business School. It is to be awarded each year to an undergraduate business student from the Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania).
Friends from Daniel's undergraduate years at Emory spearheaded the fundraising for the scholarship. They will continue raising funds to further the scholarship's impact, and welcome support from the Goizueta community. "He would have been a very successful lawyer," says Frank DeSevo. "He was a special person."
