Where Purpose Meets Business

This year, Albers is celebrating 75 years of being a leader in championing business to drive positive social change and build a better community. Students are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of co-curricular activities to apply what they learn in the classroom, expand their knowledge, and give back to the world. By making a donation through Seattle U Gives, you continue this legacy. 

Choose from four initiatives, listed below, that complement the work we do in the classroom every day.  Business competitions, scholarships and technology, all of it matters and helps shape future leaders who are committed to making a difference above and beyond the bottom line.   In addition to the funds listed below, you may choose to support any fund in Albers on SU Gives Day.

The four funds we are highlighting this year include: 

Albers Dean’s Fund 

The Dean’s Fund provides flexible funding for Dean Joe Phillips to respond to emerging needs and opportunities that come up throughout the year.  This fund has been especially critical the last two years as we’ve faced unprecedented challenges with the pandemic.  Every student in Albers is positively impacted by donations to the Dean’s Fund. 

Albers Alumni Scholarship Fund 

The Albers Alumni Scholarship Fund was created in 2002 by a group of committed Albers alumni when the Albers Alumni Crab Feed was born.  It provides scholarships for both undergraduate and graduate students in all Albers programs. Over the years, more than 80 students have received scholarships from this fund, thanks to the generosity of many alumni. 

MBA in Sport and Entertainment Management Scholarship 

This program is focused on developing professional business leaders from diverse backgrounds to succeed in the sport and entertainment industry.  Gifts to this fund will provide scholarships for diverse students enrolled in this graduate program. 

Finance Department Fund 

Gifts to this fund support the co-curricular experiences our students studying finance participate in, such as the Redhawk Fund, the Investment Club, the CFA Investment Research Challenge and the CFA Ethics Challenge.  Both undergraduate and graduate students benefit from donations supporting the Finance Department.
