Alex and Kim Smith Family Business Ethics Challenge

Alex Smith (BSBA '81) and his wife, Kim, have established the Alex and Kim Smith Family Business Ethics Challenge. The Smiths will match dollar-for-dollar all gifts and pledge commitments designated for undergraduate business ethics education up to $125,000.

Alex and Kim want to help create a culture at Heavener where ethics education is even more pronounced; a place where every undergraduate student will be given the tools and knowledge to become principled, honorable business leaders who stand up for what's right and won't cower to pressure. We share that vision as well.

Let's show the University of Florida and the business community what we stand for, and how much we care about our students.

This is your chance to have a tangible effect on our business curriculum. Give whatever you can. Any amount makes a difference.

Annual Gifts

Annual gifts to the Warrington College of Business Administration provide support that is crucial to the lives of students and faculty. The enhancements and opportunities beyond the classroom our students receive are all privately funded by donations.

Warrington’s reputation is built upon your legacy of success, and we are asking you to invest in the future of our students. Your annual gift is an invaluable component of the Warrington College’s budget, with 14% of our overall budget derived from private gifts and endowments. By participating, you help the Warrington College strengthen its position among the nation’s most prestigious business schools.

Dean’s Leadership Circle

The Dean’s Leadership Circle recognizes our donors who have made a gift of $1,000* or more to the Warrington College of Business Administration or Fisher School of Accounting in a fiscal year. Recent graduates of the last 5 years will be recognized with a contribution of $500* or more.

* Corporate matching gifts will be considered for Dean’s Leadership Circle recognition in the current fiscal year.

How does Warrington Compare to other Top Business Schools?

The Warrington College has fallen behind our peer schools as only 3% of our alumni population contributes an annual gift to Warrington each year. Your gift makes a difference. An annual gift, of any amount, increases our alumni giving rate, which in turn elevates our national rankings and thereby enhances the value of a Warrington degree.
