The GWSB Alumni Advocate

June 2011

The GWSB Alumni Advocate is a newsletter featuring ideas on how you can get involved with the GWSB Alumni Network, articles on recent events and information on upcoming GWSB Alumni events.

Thank you for your gifts of work, wealth and wisdom!

On behalf of the GWSB Office of Development and Alumni Relations, it is my honor to thank those alumni who have graciously supported GWSB through a variety of programs this fiscal year. Gifts of work and wisdom are invaluable to creating a stronger GWSB Alumni Network.

There are a variety of ways for alumni to contribute gifts of work and wisdom including serving as a mentor to a student, hosting a table during a GWSB Student/Alumni luncheon, speaking to a GWSB class or student organization, hosting a group of students during a career trek, hiring a GWSB student or alumnus, attending an alumni event, completing a rankings survey and providing a faculty member with access to information for research.

Gifts of wealth are also an opportunity to make an impact on the School and University. As you think about making your annual gifts, consider which area of the School is most meaningful to you. When making your gift, you may indicate a specific area of the School or University you would like to support. Gifts may be made online by visiting

Gifts of work, wealth and wisdom increase the value of your degree, strengthen the GWSB Alumni Network and create a greater legacy for our students. Thank you to those who have already contributed! For those who are interested in getting involved, please feel free to contact the GWSB Office of Alumni Relations at 202-994-3497 or via email at We look forward to working with you!

- Leah Kuppersmith, BBA '03, associate director of alumni relations, GWSB
