Open a Door Campaign

We’re raising money for the underprivileged and underconnected students, so they can participate in the same activities that open doors for those students who have the financial means and personal connections to do so. As many of us know it’s not ‘what you know’ but ‘who you know’ and ‘where you’ve been’ that determine student’s career opportunities.

By giving to this campaign you are helping disadvantaged students participate in the annual UNCW Cameron School of Business NYC Wall Street Experience; an off-site business school program that is organized by the school and it’s professors, but participation is contingent on personal means to pay for all the activities - travel, hotel, food etc... We’re aiming to level the playing field so that the hard working but underprivileged students can participate and gain the same exposure as those students more fortunate than them. The program takes place in NYC and includes several formal business events and presentations at major financial institutions, including recruiting opportunities.

A visit to the Federal Reserve Bank, the New York Stock Exchange, or a chance to meet with a NYC business executive or recruiter, may open that critical door for them and ultimately change the course of their lives. 

Thank you for giving back!
