Annual Fund

The Crummer Fund provides the school with unrestricted funds that are key to institutional flexibility. Gifts to the Crummer Fund benefit every Crummer School student and faculty member by providing essential resources for a variety of needs.

Alumni participation is critical because it affects the school’s ranking in publications such as U.S. News & World Report, influences corporate and foundation giving, and sends a positive message about the Crummer School’s quality to prospective students and business partners.

How will your gift be used?


Enhanced Alumni Services
The benefits of being a Crummer School graduate extend beyond a great education. Graduates from the School become part of an elite network of some of the community’s strongest business and community leaders. Through networking events, the alumni newsletter, and our website, graduates stay connected with fellow alumni, faculty and staff – people with the desire and drive to help Crummer School graduates succeed.

Merit-based scholarships
The Crummer School draws some of the brightest, most highly motivated students to it’s programs, however, monetary challenges often prevent these students from taking advantage of a quality graduate business education. The School strives to make its programs available to all qualified candidates, regardless of their financial resources. Contributions made by alumni and friends assure these talented students the opportunity to earn an otherwise unattainable MBA.

Enhanced Career Development Programs

The Crummer School believes strongly in supporting our students in their quest for employment opportunities that match the skill sets they acquire through their MBA education. Gifts to the Crummer Fund help to facilitate this process by providing the resources necessary to run a top-notch career development program.

In today’s world, technology is vital to the success of every business organization. Your generous donation helps to provide cutting edge technology and equipment for our students to ensure that they have a competitive advantage in the world marketplace.

Facility Improvements

To attract the strongest MBA candidates, the most prominent corporate recruiters, and a premier business faculty, the Crummer School must offer state-of-the-art facilities. Gifts to the Crummer Fund will help fund classroom and study area renovations, including the upgrade of computer facilities and Internet wiring of classrooms.
