Celebrate 40 Years By Giving Back!

It's hard to believe that it has been 40 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.

We've exceeded our goal of reaching 40% class gift participation in honor of 40 years and our stretch goal of $100,000 in contributions and commitments by June 30!

GSIA 1981 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 our GSIA Class of 1981 leave a positive legacy for current and future students by making a class gift contribution today.
