The W.L. Mellon Society was created in 1997 to honor the business school’s founder, William Larimer Mellon, for his vision and generosity, and to recognize the generosity of alumni and friends who continue his tradition of philanthropy. Membership is renewable annually with a gift of $1,000 or more to the Tepper School.

Company matching gifts that increase your total fiscal year gift to $1,000+ qualify you for membership in the W.L. Mellon Society.
