Sullivan Award Winner Creates Angel Network Opportunity for Sullivan Schools and Alumni
25% of Membership Fees Send Sullivan School Students to Business and Leadership Camps
Matt Dunbar, a 1991 Sullivan Award recipient, as well as founder and managing director of VentureSouth, recently launched an affiliate angel fund designed to benefit students at the Foundation’s network of schools.
Alumni from Sullivan Foundation partner schools may now become members of the South’s most successful angel network, and 25% of their annual membership fees will be donated to the Foundation and earmarked to the member’s alma mater. All proceeds will be used to financially support students, faculty and staff interested participating in the Foundation’s programming and teaching focused on how to make positive change in their communities. New members may also donate a percentage of any profits derived from their investments to benefit their school of choice.
“I was fortunate and humbled to be presented the Sullivan Award upon graduating from Clemson and through chance recently, I reconnected with the Foundation,” said Dunbar. Creating this affiliate fund, specifically for Sullivan Alumni, and donating a portion of annual fees is one way to support the Sullivan network of schools and encouraging students to choose a path of service to their communities.
