Gifts from alumni, faculty, staff, and friends sustain the business education and values-based leadership development that is a hallmark of William & Mary's School of Business. This support creates opportunities for students and faculty that would not otherwise be possible. Whether it is celebrating a reunion or class gift or as part of your ongoing philanthropy, we hope you will make an annual tradition of supporting business education at William & Mary.

Naming Opportunities

Capital and program support opportunities abound at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business. While the opening of our new home in Miller Hall will find many spaces recognizing individual and corporate sponsors, many naming opportunities remain. Further, given the evolving curricula in traditional business education and the addition of new initiatives, such as in entrepreneurship and ethics, programmatic support needs are great.

The Office of the Dean and Development & External Relations are prepared to work closely with those who want to invest in advancing the Mason School's internationally acclaimed academic programming. Contact [[m|development]] for further information on naming opportunities.


Graduate business students are supported in part by a number of scholarship funds created to help today's students achieve the William & Mary experience. These gifts are essential in helping the Mason School attract and compete for the best and brightest students. Annual gifts of $10,000 can make a difference through an expendable partial scholarship.

Taking the long view? Endowed scholarships may be established within The W&M Business School Foundation and will benefit students every year in perpetuity. For example, an endowed fund of $500,000 established today would provide a full graduate student scholarship every year. What a great way to create a lasting legacy or to recognize a family member or a favorite business professor.

A few examples of these funds invested for student support are:

  • The Priscilla E. Case Memorial MBA Scholarship
  • The Penny and Bill George Graduate Scholarship
  • MBA Alumni Scholarship Fund
  • The Pamela J. Penny and James D. Penny Accounting Scholarship
  • The Lura Dixon Showalter MBA Fellowship
  • The Marvin Miles Stanley Scholarship
