Tuck Alumni Give Record-Setting $6.3 Million in 2013

tuckFor the third year in a row, more than 70 percent of alumni contributed to the Tuck Annual Giving campaign at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, raising a record $6.3 million in the last fiscal year. The participation rate is nearly triple the average participation rate of nine peer business schools, Tuck reports. Achieving the 70 percent rate also triggered a $50,000 gift from an anonymous donor last month.

“The generosity of our alumni is unrivaled and enables us to provide a truly transformational experience to each and every one of our students,” Tuck Dean Paul Danos said in a statement. The funds raised provide about 8 percent of the school’s annual operating revenues and direct support for innovation, Tuck reports.

In total, 6.332 alumni participated in the campaign. This year’s fundraising bested last year’s $5.7 million and broke the previous record of $5.9 million in 2008. More than 500 volunteers worked as part of the fundraising campaign.

“Our model of bringing internationally-renowned faculty together with some of the world’s best business students in a tight-knit, intimate environment is unique,” John Torget T’00, Tuck’s director of annual giving, development and alumni services, said in a statement. “The 70 percent giving rate is a beacon that shows how we do things in the MBA program really matters to those who have had the privilege to experience it,” he continued.
