The Carlson School of Management MBA Charity Auction is organized by Carlson 4 Community (C4C), a service group led by Carlson School of Management MBA students. C4C’s mission is to promote volunteerism and community involvement both at the Carlson School of Management and within the community in which the school resides. In addition to the charity auction, C4C coordinates many volunteer activities throughout the year. Recent projects include participating in a Habitat for Humanity build day and a Penny Wars fundraiser held in collaboration with Net Impact.
The 2012 MBA Charity Auction was attended by 375 Carlson students, faculty and alumni, and raised over $30,000 for the Brian Coyle Center's Youth Social Entreprenuership Program, a youth-run business that helps develop entrepreneurial skills and foster cross-cultural and cross-generational connections for ongoing community building and community development.
