“Poised for Success” is an enrichment activity that is offered during the LIFEvest program designed to provide students with professional clothing options as well as personal affect and hygiene counseling with the goal of helping each student feel their full potential through positive first impressions. Donations of gently worn women's business attire are needed now. Please check your closets for items you no longer need. Encourage your friends and business associates to do the same.
We ask that your business attire donations be clean, up-to-date, and "interview appropriate." All sizes are needed: petites and plus sizes appreciated. Business apparel needed includes:
• Pant & Skirt Suits • Dress Shirts • Trousers • Dress Pants • Blouses • Dresses • Blazers/Jackets • Cardigans • Accessories • Purses • Flats • Mid - Low Heels
The UC Irvine, Center for Investment and Wealth Management’s fifth annual Financial Literacy Summer Residential Program is a one-week, on-campus program dedicated to helping underserved eighth and ninth grade students by teaching life skills in a highly supportive environment. The program is designed for high achieving students from low-income families.
LIFEvest is completely funded by generous donors since no funding is received from The Paul Merage School of Business School, UCI, or the State of California. It costs about $2,100 for each student to attend the program and we have 40 students this year. All donations go directly to program costs so our students and their families are not burdened with any fees. Your support is vital and any contribution you can provide makes a difference in the lives of these students.
