From his undergrad to graduate school, Todd Richter is a very proud alum who stays close to the schools that shaped his adulthood. Richter attended the College of William & Mary for his undergraduate studies, graduating in 1979 with a degree in finance. Since that time, he’s remained connected to the Virginia school, especially its golf program which Richter attributes for much of his achievements. “I attribute a lot of my business career success to the discipline I developed as a student at William & Mary,” he said, giving direct praise to his golf instructor, Coach Joe Agee. Richter continues to engage with students in the classroom and on the golf course, both in Virginia and in New York where he resides. He enjoys providing them with the confidence, encouragement and knowledge that he received in order to make them as successful in their studies and into the future.

Todd Richter also remains a fervent supporter of his graduate school. In 1981, he graduated from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University with his MBA in finance. Since then, Richter has had a significantly successful career -- a career that has led him to recently create a $5 million estate commitment to the Todd B. Richter Fund, which benefits five endowments specific to the Kelley School’s financial department. Richter’s fund is just the latest support following many years of service to recruitment and membership upon organizations that include the Kelley Alumni Association’s Metropolitan New York chapter and the Kelley School Dean’s Council.

As a successful graduate and alumnus of the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, Todd B. Richter is giving back to the educational community that created a sturdy foundation for him to grow upon. He has recently endowed a $5 million fund that directly benefits professors and students within the Kelley School.

For Todd Richter, it is crucial to support the programs and individuals who helped him become the success that he is today. In the past, Richter has provided an alumni relationship, mentorship and volunteerism to the Kelley School. Now he takes his commitments an additional step further to contribute significantly to the growth of the programs and those students within it.

Said Dean Daniel C. Smith about Richter’s endowment fund, “Todd Richter, through his extraordinary generosity and passionate support, actively lives out all the values that the Kelley School holds dear … [The Richter Fund] will ensure that future generations of the Kelley community will come to know Todd and be inspired to engage with the School as he has done and continues to do.”
