Reunions

Class of 1981 Reunion

Creating a class reunion gift is an important component of reunion celebrations. While providing a powerful impetus for increased financial support, the gift drive also helps strengthen individual and class ties with the College by renewing shared class feelings of pride and loyalty.

Contributions to the Annual Fund from class members, family, and friends, as well as matching gifts from corporations and foundations, all count in a reunion total. Unrestricted gifts to the Alumni Fund are the College's top fund-raising priority. In response to guidelines approved by the Board of Managers in 1991, most classes set goals of doubling their usual level of support in the year of a reunion.
