SBI Alumni and Friends 2009 Annual Fund Campaign
Excellence at the Florida A&M University School of Business and Industry is measured
by our ability to transform students’ lives through our global business leader education
program. The curriculum and practicum at SBI gives our students the knowledge and
skills necessary to succeed in their chosen professions, and additionally, strengthens
their ability to think critically in order to contribute constructively and productively
to 21st century society.
Do you recall your FAMU and SBI experiences? Would you be where you are today if
not for SBI? Do you still keep in touch and exchange ideas with your FAMU SBI classmates?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then FAMU School of Business and Industry
has made an impressionable impact on your life. By making a gift at this time, you
can make an impact on a current or future student at SBI. Your gift will make it
possible to transform lives in the School of Business and Industry (SBI) and Florida
A&M University (FAMU). The funds raised from this gift giving campaign will be used
for recruitment, scholarships, faculty development, technology upgrades, and classroom/building
renovations. Additionally, a small percentage of the funds raised will be given to
support FAMU Athletics and SBI Athletes. The future for FAMU SBI can be even bigger
and brighter with your financial support.
How You Can Make A Difference
You can make a tax-deductible gift or pledge to SBI via online giving by clicking
Additionally, FAMU faculty and staff have the ability to set up a payroll deduction.
Finally, if you work for a matching gift employer, you can double or in some rare
instances, triple your gift to FAMU SBI. For example, if you give $2,500 and your
company makes a 100% match, you would be recorded as a Gold level donor with a $5,000
donation. If you wish to discuss other types of gifts such as, appreciated stocks,
shares of mutual funds or IRA accounts, property or an estate gift, please contact
Ms. Mechelle English, Associate Vice President, University Advancement at firstname.lastname@example.org; or via telephone at 850-412-6605.
