Colleges and universities have alumni organizations that encourage former students to join their network, in large measure to raise funds to support current students. Facilitating meaningful business connections is also in the mix, but not necessarily a focus.
And what if you’re focused both on growing your business and funding academic scholarships to the school of your choice? And what if you’re focused on both doing well (growing your business) and doing good (funding academic scholarships to the school of your choice)?
Our founder Jason Fox had that question – and from there, Alumni Networking was born.
Alumni Networking is a 501(c)(3), non profit organization helping colleges and universities raise funds for academic scholarships. It is our belief that many business alumni would be interested in creating sustainable higher education funding, and help future students earn their degrees. Alumni Networking is designed as a business to business platform to expand your business opportunities and increase revenues. Participating members would be asked when they register to make a small pledge (whatever amount they prefer) from business generated on the site with fellow members toward academic scholarships. Each participating firm can designate half their pledge to the school of their choice. For every dollar donated, 90% will go towards scholarships, the site will only operate on 10%.
