Haas Leadership Society

The Haas Leadership Society annually recognizes our most generous supporters of Berkeley-Haas. Each year more than 80% of the annual support for the Haas School of Business comes from the contributions of our alumni and friends in the Haas Leadership Society.

HLS membership is currently granted to individuals at six levels based on all hard and soft credit cash donations and corporate matching gifts to the Haas School from July 1st to June 30th. Members receive annual recognition in the Berkeley-Haas Annual Report, as well as a variety of special privileges, each dependent on giving level. Membership courtesies are honored for the current and subsequent fiscal year.

Please note: Haas Leadership Society minimum giving levels and membership privileges are changing effective July 1, 2014! Read the fine print.
