Biz Buzz: From the Fundraising Desk Western University’s Ivey Business School wrapped its Campaign for Leadership last month. Publicly launched in 2010, the campaign exceeded its C$200 million goal by C$6 million, making it the largest fundraising effort in the school’s 90-year history. Auburn University’s business school has been renamed as the Raymond J. Harbert College of Business, in recognition of a US$40 million commitment from the school’s namesake. André Hoffmann has donated S$5 million to support the expansion of INSEAD’s Leadership Development Centre in Singapore. Timothy P. Keenan has pledged US$1 million from the Keenan Family Foundation to support technology entrepreneurship and commercialization education at the Ohio State University Fisher College of Business. The Craig School of Business at Missouri Western State University has benefited from a real-life example of asset appreciation. Steven L. Craig pledged US$5.5 million to the school in 2008 to establish the Craig School of Business. Most of the gift was in the form of shares of ownership in a shopping center in Oregon. When the sale of that shopping center was completed recently, the total value of Craig’s gift topped US$7.7 million, including US$2.5 million in distributions prior to the sale. ©2002-2021, Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAC®).
