We're gearing up, and it's all about class participation. Whether by phone or by email, it's time to reach out to your classmates and remind them to make their Alumni Fund gifts. See the latest Class Awards page and LYBUNT (Last Year But Unfortunately Not This) report.
2013 reunion Challenge
Two alumni in their reunion years are offering $250,000 in challenge funds for reunion classes that beat their own dollar or participation records.
- If your reunion class is among the first 10 to surpass its dollar or participation record, it will receive $25,000 credited to the class's Alumni Fund total.
- If your reunion class beats both records, it could add $50,000 to its class total.
- Awards will be issued as records are broken, so your gift now will help your class meet the Challenge!

This year's senior class is currently at 76% participation. They have received a challenge offer of $10,000 if they reach 90%; they need only 64 more gifts to reach that goal.
The College has announced plans to repurpose the McKim, Mead & White designed Power House. This former power plant on the east side of campus will be transformed into a wonderful new space for students, and is scheduled to be completed in spring 2014. Click Power House for more information. Consider including the link in your outreach emails to classmates and Associate Agents!
The campaign has raised $490 million, with 6 more weeks to go. Remember, Alumni Fund gifts made before June 30th count in the campaign total.
