2024 MBA Class Gift Campaign 

The graduating MBA class is coming together to support our 2024 Class Giving Campaign. We hope you'll join us in showing our pride in the school and our program by making a contribution this year.

What is Class Giving?: We are an important part of the Tepper community for life. This is our chance to unite as a class to leave a lasting impact that will help to ensure the success of the Tepper program for years to come. A gift to any Tepper fund will be counted toward our class gift participation goal. We encourage you to support an area at Tepper that you care about.

Class Giving History: Graduating Class Giving has been a Tepper tradition for over 20 years. The average full-time graduating class participation over the last 10-years is more than 80%. The Class of 2018 set the current record with 100% class participation. Help us continue this tradition of strong support!

Are You Part of the 2025 Class? The Class of 2025 is welcome to make a gift to the Tepper School on this page. We encourage all MBA students to make a gift during their first year.

Why Give? 

  • Demonstrate your pride and confidence in the Tepper School MBA program.
  • As a thank you to the school and our program, in recognition of the friendships and opportunities the Tepper School facilitated.
  • Pay it forward.
  • Invest in the future of the school.
  • Join your classmates.

How Much Should I Give?

As a participation campaign, it's not the gift amount that matters, but rather that you chose to support the Tepper School, showing a vote of confidence in the school. We recommend a monthly recurring gift of $10. (That's less than the cost of one cup of coffee a week!)  

Annual gifts totaling $500 or more qualify students for membership in the W.L. Mellon Society, the Tepper School's society for our leadership donors. Membership benefits include listing on the donor board within the Tepper School, invitations to special events, and exclusive communications.

Support the MBA Student Travel Fund
