Carlson School Exceeds Fundraising Goal on Give to the Max Day

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

On November 17, the Carlson School community came together to raise more than $260,000 for Give to the Max Day, more than tripling last year's total. The one-day campaign engaged more than 210 donors—from recent graduates, to first-time donors, to repeat benefactors. These gifts support the School's core strengths: world-class student access and support, experiential learning, and global competency for all students.

Carlson School alumni, friends, faculty, and staff raised $50,641.50 through the Give to the Max Day crowdfunding site, which unlocked a $50,000 match. The matching gift was generously offered by William Dudley, '55 BSB, and his wife, Jane. In addition, alumni and friends donated more than $160,000, bringing the grand total to more than $260,000. Finally, the Carlson School won a $12,000 prize from the University of Minnesota Foundation

The Carlson School is grateful for donors' collective generosity and continued commitment to the School.
