The College of Business Centennial Fund was created at the request of President William LaForge through his direction of a portion of a generous unrestricted grant provided to the University by the Gertrude C. Ford Foundation.
In recognition of the Gertrude C. Ford Foundation’s special contribution, it is our goal for the College of Business alumni, faculty, staff and friends to match the $2,000 allocated to the College. This additional support will create a source of funding which will help increase the College’s ability to address some of its most important priorities.
Gifts to this fund contribute to the College of Business’ faculty development, scholarships, research and services, equipment, hardware, and software.
We recognize our responsibility to provide our students with the skill sets to be successful wherever their destiny might lead them; and, we would love for our students to remain and use their talents and skills in the Delta. Nevertheless, our commitment to student placement has resulted in our graduates having careers all over the world.
To learn more about the difference your gift can make to this fund, please email us at Foundation@deltastate.edu or give us a call at 662-846-4704.
