Tuck School of Business Alumni Set Record with Annual Gift

300px-Dartmouth_College_campus_2007-06-23_Tuck_School_of_BusinessDartmouth’s Tuck School of Business has long been known for the generosity of its alumni, and this year total funds raised broke all previous records, the school reports. Tuck Annual Giving (TAG) raised $6.35 million in the last fiscal year and drew the participation of 70.9 percent of alumni, more than ever before at Tuck or any other business school for that matter.

This year marks the fourth in a row that more than 70 percent of Tuck graduates have contributed to the TAG campaign, which is more than double the average giving rate of other business schools, the school notes.

“This is so much more than just a number,” Dean Paul Danos said in a statement. “It speaks to our graduates’ satisfaction with Tuck and to their continued confidence in our approach to management education.”

Each year the TAG campaign manages to raise even more money to support the school. In 2013, $6.3 million was raised, topping the $5.7 million raised in 2012. A $43,000 challenge gift from the TAG Executive Committee and an anonymous donor – marking the fund’s 43rd year – helped boost 2014 to record-setting levels. All funds raised by TAG are unrestricted as to use. Overall, they provide approximately 8 percent of the school’s operating budget, as well as direct support for innovation.

“Alumni loyalty and generosity connected with the extraordinary diligence and care of our annual giving team in Hanover and our volunteers around the globe help make Tuck strong and unique,” Don M. Wilson, III T’73, chair of the Tuck Annual Giving Executive Committee for the past 10 years, said in a statement.
