Celebrate 45 Years By Giving Back!

It's hard to believe that it has been 45 years since we walked the halls of GSIA. In honor of this special milestone and in memory of our GSIA experience and education, let's join together in support of the Tepper School.

This year we are challenging our class to reach 25% class gift participation. We need your help to meet our goal of 17 Class of 1977 Tepper School donors!

Fundraising Progress

  • Goal: 17 Donors

GSIA Class of 1977 Campaign

By contributing to our class gift campaign, your generosity will provide essential support to the Tepper School Annual Fund.

Tepper School Annual Fund

The Annual Fund supports areas of greatest need at the school, including: 

  • Student financial aid: 831 graduate students received financial assistance during the 2020-2021 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 transition to a hybrid learning model during the 2020-2021 academic year.

Help our GSIA Class of 1977 leave a positive legacy for current and future students by making a class gift contribution today.
