Giving DEISday 2024
2,732 Donors - $1,113,215 Donated

When this year's incoming class of Heller students arrived on campus for orientation, they described feelings of resiliency, gratitude, optimism, persistence, and uncertainty at the start of their Heller journeys. These descriptors are a testimony to the character of our students and to the community of caring that surrounds them.

Can you help make this network of support visible on this Giving DEISDay? Our funding priorities include causes like the student enrichment funds through the Heller Annual Fund, the Heller School Fellowship Fund, and the Heller Dean’s Discretionary Fund to address the school’s greatest needs. Student enrichment funds augment students’ academic journeys by helping them purchase classroom materials, attend professional conferences, and support dissertation research expenses.

A student writes: “This award allowed me to continue classes with all materials necessary, without having the added stress of not being able to afford the books needed. By lifting this financial burden, you have deeply impacted my semester in a positive way.”

  • A gift of $25 can buy a textbook;
  • $500 can send a student to a career building conference;
  • and $3,000 can provide a PhD student with the materials and resources necessary to complete their dissertation. 

When you support the Heller School Fellowship Fund, you are shoring up student success by reducing their tuition costs, which enables them to focus on their academic program with less financial stress in their daily lives.

Your gift, no matter the size, will go far! A generous member of the Heller School Board of Advisors has stepped forward to match an additional $6,500 gift once we reach 100 donors in honor of our 65th year!

Thank you in advance for your support of Heller students!
