EMBA Charitable Gift Fund
The Boston University Executive MBA Charitable Fund was inaugurated in May 2000 to provide an opportunity for students and alumni to give back to the community and school that enriched their lives.
Each year, the graduating Executive MBA class spearheads fundraising efforts to support the EMBA Fund and a charitable organization. The EMBA 26 class is continuing this generous tradition by supporting The Boston Collegiate Charter School. The Boston Collegiate Charter School (BCCS) is a free public school located in Boston serving 640 students in grades 5-12. The student body is ethnically and economically diverse, with students coming from all 13 neighborhoods of Boston, more than 50% from Dorchester. Admission is by random public lottery, and there are currently nearly 3,000 children on the waiting list to attend. The mission of the school is to prepare each student for college, and since their first class graduated in 2004, 100% of graduates have been accepted to college, and their tenth grade students rank #1 in the state on the English Language Arts and Math MCAS exams.
For the fifth year, the EMBA Fund is in a position to disburse funds to Boston University. The EMBA 26 class, in conjunction with the Charitable Fund Trustees, has chosen to contribute to the MBA Internship Fund which subsidizes socially purposed internships for MBA students.
