Hello Class of 2019!
We are only weeks away from graduation and we have one more Class project to do before the graduation ceremonies make things official!
March 14th is Giving Day (check out this fun video!) and the launch of our annual Class Campaign! Each year the graduating class works together to begin building our legacy to the institutions that have made an investment in us over the past two years. Both Cornell and Queen’s rely on alumni support to augment resources and services for students, recruit top faculty, and continue to compete amongst top MBA programs.
Support from alumni has allowed Cornell & Queen’s to continue a tradition of excellence that makes us proud to be a part of both families.
As per tradition, the EMBA Americas graduating class collectively raises funds for Johnson and Smith and is able to celebrate with Dean Saunders at Queen’s and Dean Nelson at Cornell at both Graduation Ceremonies. We ask you to join us today in making your gift where every contribution creates opportunity.
Our goal is 100% participation! Every gift, small or large, will help make a difference to accomplish our goal of raising $31,000 for the programs. Join us in kicking off our campaign and joining the entire alumni community on Thursday, March 14th for Giving Day festivities and we will celebrate our success starting on May 23, 2019!
How Do I Give?
Donations to Cornell and/or Queen's will count towards the class goal. Recurring gifts are also an option.
Make a gift to Johnson at Cornell University (on this page)- This fund has enhanced programming, student and alumni engagement as well as faculty hires and research. This year we also have the option to contribute to the newly created MBA Veterans Scholarship Fund!
Make a gift to Smith at Queen's University (through Queen's Landing Page) - This fund has supported learning materials and tuition grants for students (e.g. Give and Take by Adam Grant - the book we all received was donated by the Class of 2019).
