The Cornell ILR Sports Business Society believes that philanthropy is an important function in any organization. We value giving back, just like our alumni and speakers value giving back to the club by coming to speak to our members. The charity that Cornell ILRSBS supports is the Garrett B. Smith Foundation in honor of former President Alex Smith’s brother, who passed away when he was four years old from pediatric cancer. The Garrett B. Smith Foundation supports research fellowships at leading hospitals around the country with the goal to “cultivate a network of top physicians that will remain committed to fighting cancer for their entire careers.”
