Celebrate 25 Years By Giving Back!

It's hard to believe that it has been 25 years since we walked the halls of Posner Hall. 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 30% class gift participation! We need your help to meet our goal of 84 Class of 1998 Tepper School donors.

Make Your Gift Go Further!

Between November 28 and December 31, 2022, the 1998 Reunion Committee will collectively contribute $25,000 to our campaign if 40 of our classmates who have not yet made a gift this fiscal year make a gift to the Tepper School.

Giving CMU Day is November 29! But you don’t have to wait! Make your gift today and help unlock $50,000 for the Tepper School! If 412 donors make a gift to the Tepper School in support of Giving CMU Day, Marc Onetto (MSIA 1975) will contribute $25,000 to the Tepper School Annual Fund. If 824 donors make a gift, Marc will contribute an additional $25,000!

GSIA Class of 1998 Campaign

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

Last year, 508 graduate students received financial aid through  Tepper School Fellowships and other awards, making a Tepper School education possible for our diverse and high-quality students by reducing the financial burden of tuition.

While we know the Tepper MBA is worth it, the rising cost of tuition can make attending a high caliber business school like Tepper out of reach without acquiring significant student loan debt. Fellowships help to reduce the amount of debt MBAs will graduate with, making the program more accessible to deserving students.

Help our GSIA Class of 1998 leave a positive legacy for current and future students by making a class gift contribution today.
