GSIA 1971 Class Gift Campaign

By contributing to our class gift campaign, your generosity will provide essential support to the Tepper School Annual Fund. The Annual Fund supports areas of greatest need at the School, including: 

  • Student financial aid, which has been increased to ensure students do not have barriers to their education during this unprecedented academic year.
  • Student engagement experiences, such as club activities, Basecamp, Diversity and Welcome Weekends, and the Accelerate Leadership Center, allowing students to build peer, corporate, and alumni networks to support their future careers.
  • Alumni engagement opportunities, like lifelong learning webinars.
  • Student safety and education, such as the School's recent transition to a hybrid learning model.

Help your GSIA Class of 1971 leave a positive legacy for current and future students by making a class gift contribution today.
