Celebrate 35 Years By Giving Back!

It's hard to believe that it has been 35 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 contribute $80,000 in current-use funds to the Tepper School. We need your help to meet our goal!


Triple Your Impact!

From Feb. 1 through April 30, any 1986 Class Gift to the Tepper School will be matched 1:1 by Jim Foster AND Mike Clancy, with $10,000 in matching funds available. Matching dollars will go to the Tepper School Annual Fund; classmate gifts can be directed to any Tepper School fund.

GSIA Class of 1986 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 1986 leave a positive legacy for current and future students by making a class gift contribution today.
