C4C at the Paul Merage School of Business
Challenge for Charity gives us the opportunity to represent The Paul Merage School of Business in the community by aligning itself externally with three philanthropies: Special Olympics, Junior Achievement, and OneOC. Internally, Challenge for Charity looks to become the guiding force in the effort to develop a close-knit family atmosphere/culture that needs to exist at a small school like ours. We look to involve the entire community (students, administration, faculty) in our efforts to raise money for charity, perform philanthropy, and participate in the C4C Weekend up at Stanford in April.
MBA Challenge for Charity
The MBA Challenge for Charity (C4C) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that draws on the talents, energy, and resources of MBAs from nine West Coast business schools to raise funds and volunteer for the Special Olympics and other charities throughout the year.
Challenge for Charity’s mission is to support Special Olympics and family-related local charities and to develop business leaders with a lifelong commitment to community involvement and social responsibility. These goals are accomplished through volunteerism and fundraising which is fostered by collegial interaction.
The competition begins at the beginning of the academic school year and finishes in April during the intramural sports events and final awards weekend at Stanford GSB. Schools compete on a per capita basis on volunteer hours and dollars raised for Special Olympics and the school’s secondary charity, as well as final scores during the inter-C4C sports competition. The winning school is honored with the Golden Briefcase.
