One Year Master’s Students Raise Awareness, Funds for an Inclusive Community Play Structure

by | Oct 25, 2019 | Business + Impact Challenge

As part of the October Business + Impact Challenge powered by the Sanger Leadership Center, 200+ one year master’s students from Michigan Ross were challenged to create positive change in the local community and beyond by generating support to build an inclusive play structure at Eberwhite Elementary School in the Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) district.

In 24 hours, the Michigan Ross Master of Management, Supply Chain, and Accounting students developed a comprehensive strategy to infuse creative marketing and fundraising ideas into the ongoing project with a focus on community empowerment and leveraging the school’s message of inclusion and accessibility. During the time period, they also raised $1,170, which will directly benefit the Eberwhite Elementary Playground Rebuild project.
