Giving to NAE

Fran and George Ligler Challenge for Section 2 Announced

description for Liglers

Fran Ligler, a member of the NAE Council and Section 2, and her husband George, both pictured on left, have pledged $100,000 to encourage giving by Section 2 members over the next 5 years or until the $100,000 goal is reached.

As an incentive, this matching gift challenge will match, dollar for dollar, any increase in a Section 2 member’s giving above what he or she gave the previous year.

Results - The Ursula Burns Challenge

In 2014, Ursula Burns (’13), Chairwoman and CEO of Xerox, challenged members of the classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014 to collectively give $100,000 to enable a stronger, more proactive NAE. We are excited to announce that over $300,000 was raised for this Challenge and the giving participation rate from the three eligible classes was 37%. Many thanks to Ursula and the members who joined in this initiative.
