Johnson Annual Fund

The Johnson Annual Fund welcomes gifts of all sizes!

We are grateful to the more than 3,000 generous alumni, students, faculty, staff, friends, and parents who make a difference at Johnson each year. The impact of these gifts is extraordinary: $3.5 million in unrestricted support provides the school with spending power approximately equal to a $78 million endowment on the people, places and programs that make Johnson one of the best MBA programs in the world.

Resources can be directed where the need is greatest

Gifts made to the Johnson Annual Fund are unrestricted, which means Dean Mark W. Nelson can direct financial resources to activities that actively expand Johnson’s reach and reputation around the globe.

Become a member of Cornell's 1865 Society

To honor and encourage regular giving, the university created the 1865 Society, named for the year of Cornell's founding. Membership is open to all Johnson alumni, students, parents, and friends who have made a gift, in any amount, for at least two consecutive years. Many Johnson Annual Fund supporters lose sight of the school's fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) and inadvertently miss making a gift some years. You can ensure your membership in the 1865 Society by making an annually recurring gift.

Visit the Johnson Online Giving site and:

  • Choose the Gift Type - Recurring
  • Set your Frequency - Annually
  • And then include an expiration date

Please join with your classmates and make your gift today.

Do you work for a Matching Gift company?

If so, the impact of your personal gift will be multiplied by the employer contribution. Find out whether your employer matches gifts.
