The Darden Annual Fund is a vital source of momentum for Darden. Through yearly gifts to the Annual Fund, alumni, students and friends renew their ties to Darden and recommit to the School's bold mission: to improve the world by developing and inspiring responsible leaders and by advancing knowledge. The Annual Fund is critical for the School, providing 4 to 5 percent of the annual operating budget.
For the fiscal year ending 30 June 2013, the Darden Annual Fund set a new record in giving: $4.57 million. The School reached 41% alumni participation, and Darden's faculty achieved an 89% participation rate — one of the highest among the world's leading business schools.
