Gies Giving Day
October 26, 2020


On October 26, 2017, the College announced the $150 million gift from Larry and Beth Gies and the naming of Gies College of Business.

To commemorate this monumental gift, the College has established Gies Giving Day, a day each year for our students, faculty, staff, and alumni to also give back to the College and demonstrate our Business on Purpose promise.

To recognize the third anniversary of the Gies gift, we continue to collect donations to support the Gies Emergency Scholarship Fund, which helps Gies Business students who are facing a personal financial crisis. The impact COVID-19 has made on our economy has increased the need for this emergency funding, with many families facing uncertainties and hardships. Your support helps to ensure these students can continue their education uninterrupted.

While we’re not able to celebrate in person this year, we invite you to register to join us virtually on October 26, 2020 at 1 pm to view an important discussion between Dean Jeffrey Brown and Larry Gies where they will discuss College priorities and highlight the impact scholarship support has on student success. Stay tuned throughout the week as we share student stories on social media.

We hope you will join us in celebrating Gies Giving Day!
