A message from the Co-Chairs of the Keller Society Leadership Circle:
In May 2022, more than 1,000 graduates will walk across the stage and set forth into the world as Team Fuqua, bringing new leadership to their companies and communities. Whether they work in such fields as finance, marketing, health care, consulting, or social impact, they will carry a core tenet of their Fuqua education to their roles: a great team will always beat a great individual. We know, because we are part of that team, too.
As co-chairs of the Keller Society Leadership Circle, we believe in Fuqua’s mission to train leaders who can bring together people from different backgrounds in highly effective teams that act with common purpose. We are dedicated to helping the school achieve this, in part, by raising the bar for philanthropic support of the school. Today, we invite you to join us as members of the Thomas F. Keller Leadership Donor Society.
For almost 50 years, Fuqua has recognized individuals making annual gifts of $1,000 or more as leadership donors. Over that time, the cost of providing a world-class business education has risen exponentially. As Fuqua takes its place among the world’s elite business schools, it is time for us, the school’s strongest supporters, to also step up. As of July 1, 2021, donors making annual gifts of $2,500 or more will qualify for membership in the Thomas F. Keller Leadership Donor Society. Students and recent graduates up to four years post-graduation may join the Keller Society with a minimum gift of $1,000.
To drive momentum around these changes, we are excited to kick off a three-year Keller Society Step-Up Challenge to encourage alumni and friends to demonstrate their leadership in our community by joining the Keller Society at the new giving level. We have ambitious goals for our school to be the best in the world because we believe in Team Fuqua. You are part of this team, and your support matters. We hope you will step up to the challenge by committing to a three-year pledge at the new leadership level and helping us to meet our membership goals.
Join us in paying it forward to ensure Fuqua continues to recruit the most talented students. Because when they embark on the world as Team Fuqua, it makes us all better.
