2018 Class Gift Campaign

Make a gift online to support your class gift!
When making a gift online, ensure your gift is designated for the Mason School by selecting SCHOOLS and UNITS, then BUSINESS, and making a selection from the Business dropdown.

Each year, students organize a class gift campaign for their program as a way to support the Raymond A. Mason School of Business. The collective impact of annual giving to the Mason School helps ensure a strong future of business education at William & Mary.  

100% Participation Goal

Our goal is to have 100 percent of the Class of 2018 giving back! You can give to any area of the Mason School of Business, and a gift of any size counts toward the 100 percent participation goal. Please make a thoughtful contribution to support your program and class gift! 

The Dean's Circle

The Dean's Circle recognizes donors to the Mason School who make leadership annual gifts. These key alumni and friends allow the School to fund scholarships, student programs, faculty support and research, curricular enhancements, and career services. Dean’s Circle members will receive an invitation to the annual Dean’s Circle Dinner with Dean Larry Pulley and the School’s most generous and renowned alumni and friends. Members will also be recognized in online and print honor rolls.

William & Mary Bell Society

The Wren Bell has stood for centuries as a testament to William & Mary's longevity. Even when the university was forced to close its doors for lack of funds from 1881 to 1888, President Benjamin Stoddert Ewell faithfully rang the Wren Bell every morning to signal William & Mary's resilience. In the spirit of this bond, the Bell Society recognizes individuals who make gifts to the university in consecutive fiscal years.

Becoming a Bell Society Member

The easiest way to become a Bell Society member is through a recurring gift. Consistent loyal support for the Raymond A. Mason School of Business is recognized by William & Mary's Bell Society depending upon the years of consecutive giving: 

  • Cornerstone - Two to four years of consecutive giving
  • Cobblestone - Five to 14 years of consecutive giving
  • Milestone - 15 to 24 years of consecutive giving
  • Bell-Ringing - 25 or more years of consecutive giving
What is a recurring gift?

A recurring gift is an ongoing, specific gift amount that you determine. Set your class gift to automatically repeat monthly, quarterly or annually using the online giving form. With a recurring gift, you are helping the Mason School provide an exceptional business education and ensuring steady, reliable funding for student and faculty initiatives. 

Using the online giving form, simply select your preferred Giving Frequency from the dropdown. The total annual amount of your recurring gift is included in the Class Gift total.
