Current students take part in telethon in order to connect with Henley Alumni and raise vital funds
The Henley Alumni Fund relies on the collective philanthropy of Henley Business School’s international network of alumni to support current and future students during their time with the Business School. By coming together to support the Henley Alumni Fund, our alumni invest in the professionals and business leaders of tomorrow and enhance the wider communities that they will go on to impact.
Previously, the Henley Alumni Fund has relied on the support of alumni from our MBA and Executive Education programmes to help participants and students who face significant financial difficulties and to increase diversity in the classroom. However, since February Henley alumni from all programmes have started giving in response to our inaugural annual telephone campaign and we have raised a fantastic £30,000 in just six weeks. These donors join our growing community of Henley supporters who give back to the Business School and cement their commitment to business education and research.
This generosity has made it possible for all Henley students, across all programme areas, who find themselves in unexpected financial need to be given the opportunity to apply for funding from the Henley Hardship Fund.
Henley Business School is proud that, together with the support of our donors, we are able to develop even more successful graduates.
Via the telethon we spoke to over 200 alumni during February and March and it is clear that Henley continues to have a profound impact on the lives of our alumni. By coming together to give back to Henley, alumni are enabling the Business School to give the experiences they had at Henley to many more generations of students and programme members in the future.
