Kellogg EMBA graduates give back with class gifts

The Kellogg Office of Development and Alumni Relations is pleased to announce the results of the latest Executive MBA Program class gift campaigns. Members of EMP-65 and EMP-66 collectively generated more than $280,000 in pledges with an 87 percent participation rate.

EMP-65 pledged $129,000 with a 98 percent participation rate under the leadership of Anne Darnley, Colette Fried, Kristin Norris and Bernadette Trucco. EMP-66, led by Kim Hendrix and Allison Knapp, secured $152,350 in pledges with 79 percent participation.

Classmates from EMP-66 designated their gift to the EMBA Alumni Enrichment Fund. As graduating students become alumni, Kellogg strives to maintain and strengthen these connections within the Kellogg community. The fund is designed to continue the relationship between the school and its alumni, allowing Kellogg to provide programs specifically for executive MBA alumni.

The members of EMP-65 split their class gift between the Alumni Enrichment Fund and the EMBA Scholarship Fund. Kellogg has a limited number of tuition scholarships for EMBA applicants coming from organizations where institutional sponsorship is not possible — such as nonprofits, government agencies or small startups. These scholarships enhance and diversify the student cohort and the experiences they bring to the program. All applicants to the Kellogg EMBA programs are screened for eligibility, and no separate application is required to be considered for these scholarships, which are awarded at the dean's discretion.
