Giving Together


D.J. Haley (MBA 2001)

In his first experience as an HBS volunteer, serving on the Major Gifts Committee for his 10th Reunion, D.J. Haley felt strongly about establishing a fellowship fund to support HBS students with a military service background—and so did 11 of his classmates. Haley, a former US Navy SEAL and currently a managing director at Ziff Brothers Investments, led an effort that raised $335,000 toward the fund that carries the name he believes says it all: the MBA Class of 2001 National Defense Fellowship.

Rich Doyle, Tom Murphy, and Stephen Quazzo (all MBA 1986)

To honor the memory of Bob Bennett (MBA 1986), who passed away in August 2011, a month before his 25th Reunion, former roommates Rich Doyle, Tom Murphy, and Stephen Quazzo organized the creation of a fund in his name. The response shows the power of group giving with an impressive $1.3 million raised from 20 HBS classmates and friends toward the Robert E. Bennett Memorial Fellowship. Such a generous outpouring is a testament to the positive impact that “Benny,” a Baker Scholar, had on the lives of so many and will continue to have on future generations of HBS students.
