Though financial support may be measured in numbers, its impact is felt through opportunities. The collective gifts of all sizes by Whitman alumni and friends lead to the next big thing at Whitman and fund transformational experiences…a trip to NYC to explore careers in banking, a scholarship that enables a first-generation student to pursue a degree or a cash prize that will help a student bring her startup to market. We are deeply grateful to the hundreds of donors who give to a range of funds and initiatives that enhance the Whitman experience. Finding a purpose for your personal philanthropy — what shaped you or your child as a student, what barriers you want to help break — makes the rewards of giving truly mutual.
The Whitman Dean's Fund
Gifts to the Whitman Dean’s Fund bring out the best in business at Syracuse University by allowing the School to tap into our collective potential, take advantage of opportunities and persevere through times of challenge. Dean’s Funds help us hire outstanding faculty, strengthen our student programs, and help provide access to a Whitman education
Gifts of all sizes truly do make an impact. Individual gifts to establish a program or endow a faculty position are key to Whitman’s aspirations of excellence and relevance. Gifts made by many that collectively open immersion experiences to all students regardless of ability to pay are foundational to our goals of equity and inclusion.
