WHY IT MATTERS
One of the most valuable assets of a top-ranked business school is its alumni network. The strength of the alumni community is a significant indication of a school's true brand strength in the marketplace. High alumni giving rates are the best proxy to assess both the satisfaction of graduates with their alma mater and the ultimate value of its alumni network. Investing in the Rady Fund is an investment in your degree and allows you to choose how your contribution will impact the Rady School.
There are four funds from which you can chose to contribute:
Rady Alumni Fund
Supporting the Rady Alumni Fund provides the opportunity to further the Rady Alumni Association's mission in building lifelong personal and professional relationships among alumni, students, the Rady School and business leaders through connection, community and contribution. Your contribution will help create dynamic networking events, support additional alumni programming and enhance corporate outreach, which benefits all Rady alumni.
