The Herbert Challenge

What began as a love story between undergraduates Patti (BBA ’57) and Allan (BBA ’55, MBA ’58) Herbert some 60-years ago has grown into a lifetime of philanthropy to their alma mater.

On October 15, 2019, the University of Miami proudly named its business school – now the University of Miami Patti and Allan Herbert Business School or Miami Herbert Business School, for short – in honor of the Herbert’s transformative $100 million in lifetime giving.

Ever-looking to inspire, Patti and Allan in partnership with the University, have created the Herbert Challenges – an opportunity for alumni and friends of the U to give back and help the business school lead in the coming century.

The Challenges promise to match certain gifts up to an established amount that are earmarked for some of the business school’s key initiatives. Your participation, no matter the Challenge, makes an impact.

There are many current and upcoming opportunities to get involved. Will you rise to the Herbert Challenge?

DONOR WALL

LEGACY GIFT MATCH

Legacy gifts are planned gifts that designate some portion of an individual’s financial or estate plans as a donation to a charitable organization. By naming the Miami Herbert Business School as a beneficiary of a planned gift, you not only enable the School to continue to pursue its mission of developing the next generation of principled business leaders but you cement your philanthropic legacy at the University of Miami.

The first 10 alumni to document the Miami Herbert Business School as a beneficiary of a planned gift will receive a 10% scholarship match (up to $10,000) that will be awarded in your name to a business student during the 2020-2021 academic year.

Status: 5 out of 10 legacy gifts matched.

Additional Benefits:

To document a new planned gift or to inform the University about an already established planned gift, please contact Dillon Boggs at (305) 284-5347 or dboggs@mbs.miami.edu.

Future Herbert Challenges

ENDOWED FACULTY CHAIR MATCH

Endowed faculty chairs are essential to recruit, retain, and reward elite academic and scholarly talent who drive dynamic curricula and, in turn, attract the highest caliber of students.

STRATEGIC PROGRAMS MATCH

The educational landscape is undergoing rapid, profound change, as is our understanding of education as a lifelong cycle that rewards flexibility, networking and experiential learning. Meeting those challenges and the needs of today’s students requires innovative ideas and a focus on key interdisciplinary studies. 

SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT MATCH

The importance of scholarships in helping the Miami Herbert Business School to sustain a highly talented and diverse student body cannot be overstated. Our goal is to meet 100 percent of demonstrated financial need, so that every admitted student has access to the full range of educational opportunities.
