Fundraising at the College of Business Administration continues to be successful.  At the end of April, the CBA surpassed its yearly goal, raising over $2 million dollars to support the college, centers, and programs that provide essential support to students in furthering their education beyond the classroom. Ryan McKinney, Director of Development, continues to work closely with Dean Solt and his vision for the CBA.  Together, Ryan and Dean Solt continue to engage with CBA alumni and friends to support college initiatives and communicate the importance of donor involvement.

Highlights for this year include more than $400,000 in cash gifts raised for the college.  These gifts of support have already been utilized in enhancing the CBA student experience and maintaining college programs. In addition, our scholarship endowments and annual scholarship supporters provided over $330,000, funding nearly 200 scholarships to well deserving undergraduate and graduate students.  The CBA continues to work hard in providing numerous opportunities for students made evident through future gifts.  Confirmed for the year, over $1.9 million.  These funds will procure the much needed funding for endowments and support the future growth of The College of Business Administration.
