Invest in Olin Business School
WashU Olin relies on your generous support to produce world-class leaders and path-breaking research, and to provide career-enhancing ROI for students and alumni.
Your gift provides the capital we need to innovate and improve upon all that we do. Choose the giving type and timing that suits you; any amount makes an impact.
Olin’s Scholars in Business program began in 1979 with 14 scholarships. Forty years and 6,000 students later, it has grown to support more than 500 students annually. This program is possible thanks to many generous gifts from individuals and organizations with a steadfast commitment to invest in accomplished students. For more information email, email@example.com, download our Scholars in Business (PDF) or visit Olin’s scholarship site.

Annual Fund gifts act as unrestricted, budget-relieving resources for Olin Business School. Unlike endowed support, which has specific restrictions placed upon its use, annual fund gifts are flexible and used to address the school’s greatest areas of need on a yearly basis. This, in turn, frees up other resources allowing us to innovate and improve upon our programs and other areas of the school. Because of Olin and WashU’s commitment to access and opportunity, the majority of Olin’s annual fund gifts are used to support scholarships. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the annual fund site.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Corporate Matching Gifts Increase the impact of your giving through a matching gift program. To find out if your employer participates and to learn more about how to apply a match to your Olin gift, visit WashU's matching gifts database. Most matching gifts are made by companies employing Olin alumni, including Bank of America Corporation, Boeing, Deloitte, Edward Jones, Emerson, ExxonMobil Corporation, Wells Fargo and many more. For more information on the matching gifts program, email email@example.com or visit the corporate matching gifts site.
Endowment gifts are vital to the strength, quality and success of WashU. Endowment professorships, endowed scholarships, endowed academic and research programs and endowed facility funds provide critical permanent support for our faculty’s teaching and research and for our students’ educational experience. The endowment is a collection of nearly 2,500 individual funds invested for the long term—some are more than a century old—that will live on through all the university’ days. For more information on endowment gifts, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the endowment gifts site.
A planned gift gives many of our alumni and friends the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy at Olin. Through charitable bequests, gift annuities and numerous other avenues, we're happy to help find what works best for you and your family. For more information, please email email@example.com or visit the planned giving site.
