Alumni Annual Fund

 

Unrestricted gifts that allow McCombs or a specific program’s leadership to use them where current (and often time sensitive) needs are greatest. Choose to support the annual fund for your program to the right or select the Alumni Annual Fund and put your gift to work where it is needed the most.

Social Innovation Initiative

 

Some students change their major; our students change the world. The Social Innovation Initiative’s Changemaker Excellence Fund enables students to create and support social enterprises in several experiential learning programs. Thanks to the support of alumni and friends, like you, our aspiring student innovators have built a bakery at an orphanage in Kenya to provide jobs for female alums, created a mentoring platform for homeless youth, and helped a B corporation build its marketing strategy. We need YOUR support to expand our students’ impact! Please, make your gift now and reimagine business with us today.

 

 

 

 

 

BBA Legacy 2019: Water Station Project

 

Created by BBA students, the BBA Legacy campaign seeks to raise $9,000 to install water purifying bottle refilling stations in the McCombs School undergraduate halls. These water stations will allow all students easy access to purified water for their reusable bottles, which will reduce McCombs’ environmental footprint and promote healthy habits to the entire student body. Please make your gift now and McCombs will match donations 1:1, until the goal is surpassed!

 

 

 

MBA Fellowships for Working Professionals

 

A first-ever fellowship fund for select prospective students who will attend the DFW, Houston, or Austin Evening programs beginning in the 2019-20 academic year. Fellowships will be awarded on a merit basis with strong consideration for need, so they will encourage stronger applications, attract more diverse students, and grow our programs in their respective markets. For every dollar you donate the program will match it 1-1,   doubling the impact of your gift!
