A Message From Mary Kelting

unspecifiedGiving means something a little different for everyone. The reasons why we give, where we give, or when we give tell a story about what we value most. There isn’t just one way to do it. And there is no limit to the good things that can come from it.

This year, I’ve seen how the generosity of our supporters can take a variety of forms, yet each effort pulls us closer to our college’s vision: becoming the undisputed leader in experiential business education. From mentoring our students and hiring our graduates to investing in our

Learn by Doing programs, your contributions have already improved the lives of our students and alumni.

As you dive into these stories of giving at the Orfalea College of Business, I hope you see how exponential your impact can be. Looking ahead to the initiatives that will shape the future of our college, I know it will take a spectrum of passion, purpose and philanthropy to help make our vision a reality.
