Success!

The Raymond A. Mason School of Business School community has come together as part of The Estes Challenge to raise $137,094, surpassing its goal of $125,000. This outpouring of support in new and increased gifts to the Business School Annual Fund makes a real difference in the lives of students and professors.

Thank you to everyone who participated, compelling Jean ’75 and Rob Estes '74 to deliver on their generous challenge!

Rob ’74 and Jean ’75 Estes share what inspired them to announce The Estes Challenge – and why they feel support of the Business School is essential to educating the next generation of business leaders.

How the Estes Challenge Works

For every new or increased gift given to the Mason School Annual Fund by June 30, 2017, Rob and Jean Estes will match the contribution dollar for dollar, up to $125,000. Please join the Estes family in supporting the Business School Annual Fund.

If You Have Not Given Within The Last Five Years

For Example: If you have not made a gift in the last five years to the Business School Annual Fund and you give $250 this year, the Estes family will match your gift with another $250, doubling the impact of your gift.

If You Gave Within the Last
