Spring 2011

By :

Carlson School alumni heeded the call.

Last fall, Kelly Doran, ’82 MBA and founder of Doran Companies, issued a challenge to Carlson School Alumni – he would match every new Annual Fund gift up to a total of $100,000. Alumni more than answered Doran’s Challenge. By the end of January, 573 new donors contributed $152,312.
        “I knew that we had generous alumni, but I was delighted to see the outpouring of support especially in such a timely manner. These [Annual Fund] dollars are critical in addressing the current needs of the school and make such a large impact,” Doran says.
        Gifts to the Annual Fund support the Carlson School in many ways, says Dean Alison Davis-Blake. “The Annual Fund enables us to offer scholarships and fellowships for new and current students, recruit and retain world-class faculty, and allow us to take advantage of unique opportunities as they present themselves,” she says.
        The Carlson School offers its utmost thanks to Doran and to all of you who helped to fulfill this challenge. If you have not yet made your gift, your support is still greatly needed and appreciated. To make your gift online, please visit www.carlsonschool.umn.edu/giving/.
