Recognizing Your Support

Donors are special people who give their time, their expertise and their financial support. Their contributions benefit our students, our programs, the quality of our education and the future of our School. At the Schulich School of Business our donors are recognized in a number of ways.

  Schulich Lifetime Giving Donor Wall
In order to honour our very supportive alumni and friends, we have erected a donor wall at the main entrance of the Seymour Schulich Building. This wall recognizes all donors to the School who have made cumulative gifts of $5,000 or more. Our Lifetime Giving Donor Wall is updated in the summer every year. The School is honoured to list your name (first and last) and Schulich degrees (no titles, professional designations, prefixes or suffixes). If you wish to have your spouse/partner/family name/middle name listed, please contact us.
Schulich Alumni Donor Wall
The Schulich Alumni Donor Wall lists all alumni of the School who have made cumulative or one-time gifts of $1,000 or more to the School. This unique display is mounted in a prominent location just outside the entrance to “Tuchners’ Pub” – our extremely popular student eatery. Our Alumni Donor Wall is updated in the summer every year. The School is honoured to list your name (last, first) and Schulich degrees (no titles, professional designations, prefixes or suffixes). Your name will be listed according to your year of graduation. Members of the Dean’s Society, Schulich’s premier leadership giving association, are recognized with a distinctive Schulich leaf right beside their names according to their level of support toward the Schulich Annual Fund annual campaign.
Special Naming Opportunities
Donors can also leave a permanent mark on the School by naming a scholarship, a classroom, an office or other prominent spaces in the building.
