Haskayne Founders' Circle

Haskayne Founders' Circle

Connecting business leaders to business education through philanthropy

At Haskayne, we are advancing business education in the areas that define Calgary and Alberta: ethical leadership, entrepreneurship, and energy. The Haskayne Founders’ Circle, a dedicated group of Haskayne supporters, was established in 2011 to help achieve these bold goals.

Haskayne Founders’ Circle members are generous and visionary individuals who support the Haskayne School of Business with a gift of $10,000 or more each year. They have joined Dick Haskayne and other visionaries and philanthropists to help create the next big chapter in our school’s story.

When you join the Haskayne Founders’ Circle, you join a driven community of philanthropists who are investing in the future of business education. Together we can energize the next generation of business leaders.
