2012 class gift reaches new heights

Executive MBA, Class of 2012

With four programs participating in this year’s MIT Sloan Student Class Gift effort, the School raised a total of $330,042.

MBA students alone contributed more than $250,000 to support the MIT Sloan Annual Fund, the School’s unrestricted giving program. A remarkable 87 percent of this year’s 401 graduates participated in the fundraising effort, with 54 students contributing at the Dean’s Circle level of $500 or more.

MBA student class gift co-chairs Clara Brenner, MBA ’12; Joshua Rider, MBA ’12; and Edward Liu, MBA/LGO ’12, led a 21-person committee of student volunteers. Each member of the group held one-on-one meetings with other graduating MBA students about the importance of supporting the Annual Fund.

“I think everyone here can agree that the MIT Sloan MBA Class of 2012 is pretty exceptional; we hosted the largest sports analytics and business conference in the world, and we started a dozen new companies. We never do anything halfway, and our class gift is no different,” said Brenner at the MBA Convocation at the Boston Opera House on June 7.
