College of Business Donation Page

The College of Business donor activity is generated through a reliable network of alliance of alumni and friends. Their support demonstrates a culture of routine giving which enables the Dean to make scholarship commitments early. The reliable alliance comprises the following discretionary categories of donations. The system allows for recurring donations.

College of Business Annual Fund:
Dean’s Circle $1,000 and up are discretionary funds used to support various programs, faculty research, and other academic activities.

Committee of 150 (C–150):
The Committee of 150 is an elite group of distinguished alumni and friends committed to financially support the College with a minimum  $1,000 annual donation, which can be paid in a lump sum or through periodic payments as a subscribing member payable in full by 9/30, of each year. The purpose is to establish a reliable and consistent level of discretionary funding for student scholarships and faculty / staff development.

As companies renew their focus on Diversity and Inclusion they are increasing recruiting at HBCUs, to meet their hiring goals. Southern University’s College of Business is an AACSB-International Accredited institution with excellent academic credentials as one of the top Business Schools in the United States. However, the College of Business lacks the financial capacity to compete with neighboring Louisiana universities and offer comparable “Full Ride” scholarships to talented high achieving students with at least a 3.0 + GPA or 21+ ACT score (or SAT equivalent). The College of Business partnered with the SU Alumni Federation to support our initiative to annually recruit students for the College of Business, thus the essential commitment for C-150 funding.

College of Business General Fund:
This fund is comprised of four categories for donations: Leadership ($500), Supporter ($250), Contributor ($100) or Other amounts. These funds are used for scholarships, faculty and staff development or other activities designated by the Dean.

College of Business Scholarship fund:
These funds are used for scholarships and various business clubs and organizations where the student’s participation enables them to obtain a well-rounded scholarly experience. The “0ther” gift amount is used for donations to this fund.
