The Haas Fund

As thinkers and working professionals, we are students always.

As innovators and path-benders, we always question the status quo.

As experienced and worldly individuals, we have confidence without attitude.

As do-ers and do-good-ers, we go and think beyond ourselves.

Give to the Haas Fund today so that our Haas School continues to attract and educate the brightest students, attract and retain top faculty, and serve us – Haas’ loyal and generous alumni community.
