Alumni and Giving

At Lindner, we empower business problem solvers by helping them learn the skills that can positively impact our world. Private philanthropy is a vital funding source for our mission, allowing Lindner to implement new programming, expand scholarship offerings, support our centers and partnerships, retain and recruit world-class faculty, and much more.


As the No. 1-ranked public university in cooperative education, we have raised more than $10 million over the past two years in support of co-op to ensure that current and future Lindner students can gain multiple paid, professional experiences before they graduate. To further encourage experiential learning, over the 2022-23 academic year we awarded $1.3 million in scholarships and supported 468 students traveling to 27 countries for study abroad experiences.

Since the Next, Now campaign was launched in 2014, Lindner has raised over $112 million, and we are not done yet — our goal is $120 million by June 2024. Support comes via donations and major gifts, bequests, scholarships, in-kind gifts and contributions to annual fundraising activities. It amazes me when I hear stories from people whose lives have been transformed by philanthropy, and who are ready to pay it forward. It is why I love what I do, and it is the UC Foundation’s purpose.

If you are not currently an active member of our Lindner community, please learn more about our priorities and opportunities to support future generations of business leaders and problem solvers. There has never been a better time to be a Bearcat! 

Thank you for your continued support,

Lauren L. Jacquot, BA ’10
