Rice Business Leadership Society

The Rice Business Leadership Society is our leadership-level annual giving circle for individuals who donate more than $2,500 annually.

Maximize the impact of your gift to Rice Business or other Dean’s priorities by joining the Rice Business Leadership Society. Recognition at one of these levels is based on unrestricted gifts to the Rice Business Fund or a restricted gift to another priority within the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business, during the past fiscal year (July-June) or year to date for the present fiscal year. Individual donors will receive soft credit for corporate matching gifts, donor-advised funds, or private foundations.

Rice Business does not receive financial support from Rice University and must raise funds to support our operations. Your philanthropy makes a big impact.
