Annual Giving Board

The Emory Annual Giving Board provides leadership in developing annual giving solicitation and fundraising strategies that support Emory's long-term goals. Members of this board represent each of Emory's schools and units, and provide recommendations and counsel to inform and ensure successful annual giving efforts. These volunteers commit to making an annual gift each year, serving as ambassadors for annual giving at Emory, and partnering with their respective school and unit liaisons and fellow alumni and community to promote the merits of giving to Emory.
