Dean Emeritus Earl F. "Budd" Cheit established the Haas Annual Fund in 1978, his goal was to imagine — and fund — opportunities that would make a difference in research and education. Today, his plan still has visionary impact. Dollars raised through private gifts to the Haas Fund have, over the years, enabled the school to become and remain one of the world's top 10 business schools.
Through the Haas Fund, alumni and friends invest in the success of the business school by maximizing support for students and exceptional faculty members, advancing Haas degree programs, seeding new initiatives, and maintaining the school's status as one of the world's premier business schools.
We invite you to join an endeavor that is more than just an annual fundraising campaign — it's a celebration of our Haas School values, and an opportunity to share them with a new generation of students.
