Give Your Grad Year

Impactful giving comes in all shapes and sizes. Coming together to celebrate your graduation year from the Merage School is a simple way to join the School’s philanthropic community and support our student body in a meaningful way. 

What if... We came together as an alumni community?

What if... We each did a little to make a BIG impact?

What if... We gave our grad year?

As a 2006 graduate and Merage School staff member, Harvey Shieh, MBA gives $20.06 per month to the Merage School.

“I’ve been part of the Merage School as a student, staff member, and alumnus. To this day, I leverage the relationships, skills, and knowledge that I gained from my MBA program. With all that this community has given to me, I felt it my responsibility to give back through the ‘give your grad year’ initiative. It’s my way of saying, ‘thank you’ to those who have helped me along the way.”

“The Paul Merage School of Business had a large role in shaping who I am today. I felt constant support from my professors, the Career Center, organizations, staff members, and classmates. When I heard about the Give Your Grad Year initiative, I knew that I wanted to participate. As a recent 2020 Merage alumna, I have committed to donating $20.20 every year for five years to support Merage and its student body. While it isn’t a large sum of money, it shows my appreciation and gratitude for the amazing opportunities, resources, classes, and events made available to me throughout my undergraduate career. I hope other alums will also participate in Give Your Grad Year to support the continued success of the school.”

If half of our 13,000+ alumni ‘give their grad year’ like Harvey, we will raise $7,807,800 for student scholarships.

Together, we will make a difference!
