The Haas Leadership Society recognizes donors who make a significant gift —$1,000 or more — to the Haas Fund during a single year, with membership renewable on an annual basis. In addition to expressing belief in the Haas School, leadership gifts enable you to have an even greater impact on the Haas School overall, and on whatever aspect of the school's mission is your priority — from student support to faculty resources, the Dean's initiatives to degree programs.
Gifts during 2009-2010 demonstrate the difference leadership gifts make to the Haas School. During our 2009-2010 fundraising campaign, 624 alumni, corporations, foundations, and friends of Haas contributed gifts of $1,000 or greater for a total of $1.95 million dollars. These gifts account for 75 percent of all gifts to the Haas Fund during the year.
The Haas Leadership Society consists of donor recognition clubs and circles that represent different levels of giving to the Haas Fund. The greater your investment, the more opportunities you enjoy to share in the Dean's vision and strategy for the future — and, of course, the greater your impact on whatever aspects of the Haas mission matter to you most.
All members of the Haas Leadership Society are recognized in the Haas Annual Report and are among the first to hear of Haas School news and achievements. They also receive invitations throughout the year to interact with the dean, faculty, students, and other Haas Leadership Society members at exclusive events. In recognition of their generosity, members may have their names, titles, and companies listed in the Haas School's Annual Report.
Please note: All hard- and soft-credited outright cash donations and corporate matching funds received by the Haas School of Business within a fiscal year (July 1st – June 30th), will be considered for Haas Leadership Society and Haas True Blue membership recognition in the current fiscal year's Haas Annual Report, with benefits awarded in the current and following fiscal year.
