Visionary Endowment

Give NowThe Visionary Endowment will play a critical role in expanding our national reputation for transforming lives and changing perspectives.  Private financial support from our alumni and business community enables us to attract and retain the most talented faculty and students.  The Visionary Endowment supports an array of opportunities for our students beyond the classroom to fully prepare them for positions of responsibility in business and society.  Your gift will enable us to create the very best student experience and make a first-class business education possible for our diverse student population.


Why Give?
Private support is essential in recruiting and supporting talented faculty and students. Private gifts fill a significant need not met by state funding. Your gift to the Richards College of Business Visionary Endowment will make a difference in the lives of students today and for generations to come. Gifts to this endowment will provide a stable source of funding for:

  • Student research and travel
  • Faculty fellowships and research
  • Community outreach
  • Mentoring programs
  • Study abroad opportunities
Thank you for your investment in making educational dreams come true.
