The Haas Fund

What’s the difference between 40% and 12%?

- The difference between our peer business schools’ annual alumni participation rates and ours

- The difference between the % of alumni that have given back to Haas in their lifetimes versus last year

- $2 Million in additional annual funds to support our school’s ongoing excellence and valued alumni network.

Bridge the gap between 12% and 40%. Give to the Haas Fund today.
