Annual Fund Surpasses Goal

The Haas School raised $2,035,819 for the Annual Fund in 2003-2004 – 20% more than the goal of $1.7 million. Much of this was due to growth in the Leadership Society, a special group of donors who give at least $1,000 each year.

"Leadership society donations comprised 74% of the annual gift total, or more than $1.5 million," says Kathy Andrews, director of the Annual Fund.

The Haas School's efforts to form class giving committees from non-reunion classes also played a part in the increase. Last year, the MBA 96 class committee raised the most funds, bringing in $46,505 with a 24% participation rate. Other lenders participation were the MBA 02s with a whopping 59%.

In 2004-2005, 14 class committees are competing against each other for the highest participation rate and the most dollars given. The winners will be recognized at the annual Leadership Society dinner in the fall.
