We welcome donations from anyone who supports our mission. The officers of the Foundation work without compensation. All donations received go directly to funding fellowships, except for very small administrative costs such as mailing and printing.    

The amount of fellowship awards varies according to need (recipients traveling longer distances to attend the conference receive slightly larger awards). A contribution of $1500 will, on average, support one fellowship.

In his long career, I think there was nothing my father enjoyed more than working with and mentoring young scholars. He especially loved working with doctoral students and spent countless hours supporting them in the development of their ideas. Dad was also deeply committed to the case method of instruction and was the author of dozens of cases, many of them widely used. I can think of no better way to honor his professional legacy than to support young academics working to become accomplished practitioners of the case method.
