Business Cares is a philanthropic program that will focus on children’s health. Students, faculty and staff will work with three main charities: N.C. Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill and Super Cooper’s Little Red Wagon Foundation.
“I think it gets back to the Carolina Way,” said Taylor Mallard, an MBA student in the Kenan-Flagler Business School and a member of the community service committee.
Students, faculty and staff can support each charity in multiple ways, including collaborating on projects at the business school and fundraising opportunities like the Business Cares Golf Tournament in April.
For the past 10 years, the business school partnered with Orange County Habitat for Humanity to build several houses for Orange County residents in need. Tom Cawley, director of special events in the business school and chairman of the community service committee, told The Daily Tar Heel in October that different considerations, such as location of builds, led them to decide to stop partnering with Habitat for Humanity on houses.
