Timing Your Gift
Fuqua's fiscal year runs July 1 through June 30. Many alumni choose to make gifts closer to the end of the calendar year in order to take advantage of IRS tax benefits. However, your gift to the school is welcome at any time.
Making a multi-year pledge allows you to declare your support of Team Fuqua over several years and allows the dean to anticipate cash flow beyond this fiscal year. For example, you may choose to pledge $10,000 payable in installments of $2,000 per year for five years.
Fuqua recognizes those making gifts of $1,000 or more annually with membership in the Thomas F. Keller Leadership Donor Society. Keller Society members are our most generous and passionate supporters, and we are deeply grateful for their investment in the school.
Reunion giving can be shown in two ways. First, you can support Team Fuqua by serving on your reunion committee. By doing so you can inspire your classmates to support the school financially and return for reunion weekend. Second, it is a great time to recognize the role that Fuqua has played in your life, by giving a gift to the Annual Fund.
At Fuqua, philanthropy begins before students turn the tassels on their graduation hats. Members of each graduating class at Fuqua commemorate their MBA or MMS experience by conducting a class gift campaign to support the Fuqua Annual Fund. Learn more about class gifts.
