Preparing business leaders for excellence has always been a primary objective of the Simon School. The unrestricted dollars from the Annual Fund are essential to our success. They provide the flexibility required to attend to the School’s most current and pressing needs. Your gift helps maintain the culture of excellence and innovation that distinguish a Simon education. Each year, Annual Giving resources make it possible for the School to:
Provide financial aid to students in need,
Recruit and retain top-ranked faculty and students,
Foster curriculum development,
Update computing and classroom facilities,and
Support faculty research.
By giving to the Annual Fund, you are contributing to the continuity of the world-class Simon education, in turn strengthening the value of your degree. You are not only acknowledging the difference Simon has made in your career, you are ensuring that this remains the place where thinkers become leaders.
Please help us reach our goals by making your tax-deductible gift today. Your support, at any level, is important. It will have an impact.
Remember, too, that the value of your gift can be doubled, or even tripled, if you or your spouse works for a matching gift company. Please check with your Human Resource or Personnel Office for matching gift forms.
