The Longo Group, an independent wealth management firm based in Slidell, Louisiana, has donated $20,000 to the University of New Orleans College of Business Administration.
The gift will provide funding for a two-year enterprise subscription of Barron’s and MarketWatch, leading providers of market analyses and financial news, to benefit UNO’s business faculty and students starting this fall.
The Longo Group’s president, Ted Longo, and Tracy Clanton, the company’s registered operations manager, who is a graduate of UNO’s business program, presented the gift to dean Pamela Kennett-Hensel. Eric Balukonis, major gifts officer with University Advancement, was also on hand for the presentation.
The gift will be recognized as a contribution toward Next Is Now: The Campaign for the University of New Orleans, the University’s first-ever comprehensive fundraising campaign, with a $50 million goal.
