The Current - Fall 2005
Generosity of Alumni and Friends Transforms the College
The investment of alumni and friends in the Commerce & Finance Building has made a tangible, lasting impact on our students, faculty and visitors. With a first class facility and a growth in the quality and quantity of our students, the College of Business is becoming a leader in creating academic opportunities with national and international impact. Our Executive MBA, the Global Executive MBA, the new master’s in Information Assurance and the launching of a certificate program in Turnaround Management, attest to the entrepreneurial spirit of the College.
Gifts made to the College’s Annual Fund are investments in our students, faculty and programs and enable the College to fulfill its distinctive role in educating future business leaders. Private support is crucial if the College is to continue to offer its students the finest education in the Jesuit and Mercy traditions of leadership and service. Every gift is important and alumni participation helps to increase our national rankings.
As we count our blessings at Thanksgiving, please consider supporting the College. Gifts of appreciated securities are advantageous because they eliminate capital gains tax liability and provide income tax savings. For those alumni and friends whose companies match individual contributions, there is a compound impact from your giving.
And if you make a new or increased gift between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31, 2005, you will be entered to win two tickets to the 2006 Super Bowl XL on Feb. 5, 2006 at Ford Field in Detroit.
If you would like to make your gift to the College of Business, please contact Greg Cascione, director of Development at 313-993-1232 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also make a gift online at www.udmercy.edu/giving.
