The W.L. Mellon Society

The W.L. Mellon Society was created in 1997 to honor the business school’s founder, William Larimer Mellon. Modeled after his vision and generosity, the W.L. Mellon Society recognizes alumni and friends who continue his tradition of philanthropy at the leadership level. 

Company matching gifts that increase your total fiscal year gift to $2,500+ qualify you for membership in the W.L. Mellon Society.
