Development Council Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities

When you volunteer for the Haas Development Council, you join a community of alumni dedicated to supporting the Haas School through philanthropy. Development Council members make their own gifts to the Haas Fund, solicit gifts from classmates and other alumni, and help develop strategies for raising higher levels of financial support.

As a member of the Development Council, you may participate in a Class Gift Committee, in a Reunion Committee, or as a leadership fundraiser focused on Haas Leadership Society prospects (gifts of $1,000 or more). Explore the descriptions that follow for an overview of responsibilities and benefits at each level of participation.

"I firmly believe that the strength of a top business school is in the power of alumni connections. We have an amazingly diverse alumni community, united by the unique place that is Haas. My volunteer role grew from a desire to help make the school stronger, more respected, and an asset to all who attended."
