Annual Fund Collects More than $2 Million

A total of 4,141 donors gave $2.4 million to the Haas Annual Fund in fiscal year 2009, which ended June 30.

Of those donors, 3,873 were Haas School alumni, representing 12.5 percent of the school's total alumni. The average gift size was $585.

In addition to individual donors, corporations and other organizations gave $47,270 to the annual fund during the last fiscal year.

The Haas Annual Fund supports a variety of purposes in the Dean's Office, including support for graduate and undergraduate programs and other initiatives to benefit the Haas School.

While the Annual Fund didn't reach its goal in fiscal year 2009, the results demonstrate the support of alumni even during the most challenging economic times.
