Minnesota resident Aaron Eichler founded and serves as Managing Director of Strategic Consulting based in Minnetonka, MN. In his role, he provides clients with business management consulting services. Before his 25-year career in business, Aaron Eichler attended Minnesota’s Macalester College, where he earned a degree in economics.
The Macalester Fund supports the institution through its Class Agent program, which facilitates donor participation. The Class Agent program is comprised of Macalester alumni who spread the word regarding why giving back to the college through the fund is important. Much of the money is donated to the college by alumni students making connections with peers, students, and fellow alumni.
The Macalester Fund supports a number of the school's activities. The fund provides program support for extracurricular activities such as art performances and workshops, emergency aid for students who encounter financial hardships, and faculty research, in addition to other activities. Ultimately, through the work of class agents, students presently enrolled at the academic institution benefit directly.
