Make a Gift
There are a number of ways you can support the Henry W. Bloch School of Management, through major gifts, the Bloch Annual Fund or planned gifts.
For more than 50 years, the Bloch School has grown and prospered because alumni and friends have made major gifts to create scholarships, support programs, and provide the dean with resources to take advantage of extraordinary opportunities. Not only do major gifts ensure a strong endowment, they can also help build and restore facilities and sustain our classroom activities.
Major gift donors can choose to direct their support toward an area where their personal interest matches the needs and priorities of the Bloch School. Major gifts can be made in the form of pledges that can be paid over a multi-year period. And major gifts can lead to unique recognition opportunities that can honor or memorialize a person who is important to you. The existing Bloch School building and the new Henry W. Bloch Executive Hall for Entrepreneurship and Innovation currently have many opportunities available for memorial gifts to name classrooms and facilities.
If you are interested in making a major gift, contact Karlyn Wilkins at 816-235-5554.
Students and student programs are the focus of the Bloch School Annual Fund Campaign. These unrestricted gifts play a critical role in augmenting scholarships, supporting student academic programs, and enabling student development and research projects. A gift to the Bloch School Annual Fund Campaign is not only tax deductible, but it also helps the School achieve its overall mission and purpose.

Alumni and friends can also choose to support the Bloch School through planned gifts that may include:
- Multi-year payments of cash gifts, securities, or outright gifts of other assets, such as real estate
- Life income plans that enable a donor to transfer an asset and retain (or provide another person) an income for life
- Charitable lead trusts that may permit people to save on income, gift and estate taxes
- Bequests, the most popular and flexible method of charitable gift planning, allowing you to establish a gift through your estate plan
The Bloch School can help you determine the type of gift that best maximizes your philanthropy and provides benefit to you in a way that is least burdensome.
Whether your interest is in creating a scholarship, supporting a favorite program or center, or leaving a legacy to honor a loved one, we will be delighted to speak with you about it.
