I’m writing to inform you about an exciting opportunity to invest in the future of UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA students on Tuesday, June 16th which will be UNC Kenan-Flagler giving day!
I have pledged $50,000 in matching funds to the Kenan-Flagler Social Impact Summer Grant Endowed Fund named in honor of Stacia L. Wood if the School can raise $20,000 in gifts and commitments from alumni and friends before June 30, 2020.
The good news is that UNC’s generous alumni have already given $16,317 to the Stacia L. Wood Social Impact Summer Grant Endowed Fund. We are 82% toward reaching our goal!
For every dollar that you give, I will give three dollars to build the Stacia L. Wood Social Impact Summer Grant Fund endowment to $100,000. Once fully endowed, the Fund will generate annual investment earnings of about $5,000 that will be given in perpetuity directly to deserving UNC MBA students pursuing internships that require business skills that will benefit these social impact organizations.
The Social Impact Summer Grant Fund benefits UNC Kenan-Flagler as a whole by strengthening UNC’s position among the best MBA programs, attracting candidates with diverse interests and backgrounds, meeting critical student needs, and demonstrating commitment to the School’s core values.
Thank you in advance for considering this opportunity to give back to Kenan-Flagler. Please join me in making your gift today by clicking below.
