FCBE Matching Gift Challenge
Between August 1 and December 31 2011, the Alumni Board of the Fogelman College of Business and Economics matched new donations by those who had not donated previously to the College, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000. Upon hearing of the match, long-time FCBE benefactor Avron Fogelman offered to also match donations in the same way. Thus, every dollar donated effectively leveraged an additional two dollars.

The impact of the Challenge was significant. There were 253 new donors, 229 of which were alumni, that initially raised: $65,489. The Alumni Board and Fogelman matches raised an additional $50,000, resulting in a campaign total of $115,489.

Alumni Board President Jennifer Brereton stated, “The challenge gift will keep up the College’s momentum, and make supporting the College fun, while improving the Fogelman experience for current students as well as students in the future.”

Even though the challenge is over, you can still donate to the College. Donors may designate their gifts to any areas of the College they choose, and they may make their gifts in several ways – by personal delivery, mail, phone, credit card, or automatic bank draft. Donations may be made in person at the Alumni Center, 635 Normal Street; office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Checks may be mailed to the University of Memphis Foundation, Department 238, University of Memphis, Post Office Box 1000, Memphis, TN, 38148-0001. To make a donation online, simply click here. To make arrangements for other methods of donation, or for more information about helping with the development of the FCBE, please call 901-678-3953.
