Support the Mcguire Center


Supporting Entrepreneurship Education

The importance of private support for the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship has never been greater. Gifts from alumni and other friends assist our students and faculty and enhance our unique learning environment. It is private philanthropy that keeps the McGuire Center among the very best public university business schools in the nation for entrepreneurship education.

At the McGuire Center we are teaching the next generation of students to be innovative and think big, using a hands-on approach with a focus on providing ongoing critical feedback. We can reach more budding entrepreneurs, prepare more students, and develop more ventures but we need your help. Every gift, large and small, makes a difference and helps us work toward accomplishing our goals. 

Your generous support provides the margin of excellence in all we do. Thank you for your support!
