Does alumni giving make an impact?
When alumni participate in giving it shows a vote of confidence, an important sign to outside funders that our community is invested in the school’s mission.
We measure participation amongst all of our constituencies: faculty-staff, board of trustees, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni and alumni.
What if I can only make a small gift?
