Haiti Relief Efforts at Kelley

The students at the Kelley School of Business have jumped into action to raise funds for relief efforts in Haiti. Top MBA students have organized a fundraising campaign with the goal of raising $5000 in cash donations and are currently collecting can goods and water as well. The graduate business program is sending all of their donations to Partners in Health. Partners in Health was chosen as the charitable partner because 95 cents on the dollar goes directly to programming and the organization has over 20 years of experience in Haiti. MBA students even worked with one of our major campus recruiters to secure a cash donation from the company. While this is only a small contribution to the overall needs facing Haiti, I believe that this actions truly represent the culture here at Kelley. While not everyone at Kelley is a Social Entrepreneurship MBA, all students and staff are working to improve the lives of individuals around the world.
