JMU Giving Day 2021 is here!

Your donations help us enrich the education and experience of our College of Business students by providing scholarships and funding for many of the programs that make a CoB degree so highly valued in the marketplace.

Your gift to the College of Business Scholarship Fund, the Hart School of Hospitality, Sport and Recreation Management or the School of Strategic Leadership Studies will have a direct and meaningful impact for students, faculty and the future of the college and its affiliate schools.

Help us extend our high-impact education and preparation to even more candidates through your gift. We’ll continue to build engaged and ethical graduates, equipped with the teamwork and leadership skills that are in demand in today’s market. Invest in the future of business with us.

We are highlighting three funds for Giving Day 2021: College of Business Scholarship Fund, the Hart School of Hospitality, Sport and Recreation Management Fund and the School of Strategic Leadership Studies Fund.

From undergraduates in business, hospitality or sport management to our Ph.D. candidates in strategic leadership, your gift fuels the success of our students across all levels of learning. Join us as we celebrate the Dukes spirit and make Giving Day 2021 one for the books!

There will be a ‘JMU Family Challenge’ set up between 4 and 6 pm, after which the top 3 funds will be awarded additional amounts—1st place - $5,000; 2nd place - $3,000; 3rd place - $2,000. Keep in mind this challenge is campus-wide, so we can help the CoB shine by giving to one of the three CoB funds during the JMU Family Challenge time.
