Double Your Impact
Thanks to an anonymous alumnus, any donation of $25,000 or more will be doubled. Your generosity will immediately have twice the impact. All gifts can be completed over periods of up to five years. For example, your gift of $25,000 can be made by pledging $5,000 a year for five years.
You can Grow With Us by making a commitment today, or pledging a naming opportunity in the new building. Please contact Lauren Clark, Director of Development, at 503-725-5039 or by email at email@example.com to discuss naming opportunity details and levels of support.
The School of Business building at PSU is expanding, and we are inviting you to Grow With Us. As Oregon’s largest and only urban university, Portland State University’s School of Business Administration boasts a diverse student body, and the MBA Program is ranked 14th in the world and 1st among smaller programs by Beyond Grey Pinstripes for its emphasis on social and environmental stewardship.
A new Business School building will enable us to continue to reflect and enhance the innovation and passion of our students, faculty, and business community. A generous $9 million donation - the largest ever to the business school - was recently revealed as a gift from MBA alumnus Rick Miller and his wife Erika. Combined with growing support from our corporate, individual and foundation sponsors, we have raised $22 million.
The $64 million project will be supported by $40 million in state-backed bonds and $24 million in private funds. The bond request was approved by the Oregon State Legislature on July 8, 2013.
