Hundreds of Berkeley-Haas students, faculty, and staff stopped by the Bank of America Forum last week for coffee, donuts, and most importantly, to thank Berkeley-Haas donors. Philanthropy Day is celebrated in January, halfway through the school year, because tuition only covers about half of the cost of running the Haas School of Business and philanthropy covers one-third of the other half. Students, faculty, and staff wrote personal notes to donors thanking them for keeping Haas a top-ranked business school. Many students reflected on the tremendous value of their Berkeley-Haas education and shared their commitment to become supporters of the school one day.
Here’s a short slideshow that captured the spirit of the week – in pictures and words. View the 2012–13 Haas Annual Report of Private Giving to learn more about the impact gifts have on the school.
