Aiming Li

Investment Analyst at Vanguard Institutional Advisory Services

“I am inspired to give because of the experience I had at WinC, it broadened my horizons to various perspectives and helped me to shape my own. More importantly, the skills I learned as a facilitator helped me to have better conversations both in my personal and professional life. I think of WinC as one of the most critical aspects of my undergraduate education, and I’d like future generations of students to benefit from the center.”

Taylor Muller

AVP, Business Development Officer – PNC Institutional Asset Management

While volunteering her time with our Alumni Development Committee, Taylor was instrumental in helping to kickstart a new level of engagement with fundraising. She made us feel like raising dollars was possible. Taylor then generously contributed to the new endowment fund that emerged from her efforts–while also taking the additional step of securing an employer match to double her impact.
