Reunion Giving

Commemorate and pay forward your Laurentian experience

The Reunion Class Gift is a St. Lawrence tradition of giving back to the place that provided a foundation for success in your lifetime, and reaches current students on campus now.

Reunion Giving is the foundation that helps the University meet the need for additional St. Lawrence Fund dollars that support student scholarships, learning for the 21st century, the power of connections and campus enhancements.   

Information

  • What Gifts Count?
    1. Any gift made during your Reunion year (July 1 - June 30) will count toward your Reunion class gift
    2. We ask all alumni to contribute to the cornerstone of Laurentian giving, the St. Lawrence Fund.
    3. We encourage alumni to consider a contribution of $2,500 or more to become a member of the Candle in the Wilderness Society
    4. Alumni are also encouraged to consider planned giving (charitable gift annuities and bequests, for example) and outright capital gifts (gifts to endowment, special capital projects) in addition to their St. Lawrence Fund support.
  • Making the Most of Your Reunion Gift

    Multi-Year Pledge Program: To maximize the impact of your Reunion gift, consider pledging out over a three-year period and have the entire amount credited to your class. For example, if you make a gift of $2,500 in your Reunion year and agree to do the same for the following two years, you and your class will receive credit for $7,500.

    Multi-year pledges are a win-win for all. You and your class receive special credit in honor of your Reunion milestone and St. Lawrence is able to count on your future commitments, saving mailing and printing costs.

    Matching gifts are another way to increase the impact of your gift. Many companies will match employee charitable contributions, in some cases doubling or tripling your gift. Visit the University's matching gift page to determine if your company has a matching gift program.

  • Help Your Class Set a Record

    During the Alumni Award and Class Gift Ceremony at Reunion, classes present their gifts to President Fox. Classes with exceptional performance will receive awards.

    The Scarlet and Brown Participation Award - Highest class gift participation

    The Saints Class Gift Award - Largest class gift

    The G. Atwood Manley Class Participation Award - Largest increase in new members of the Manley Society

    The Hervey Cup - "Best in Show" in the traditional All-Class Parade

    Classes also strive to set fundraising records for their particular milestone Reunion (such as largest dollar total and/or participation for a 10th Reunion).

    Participate today and help your class take home one of these special awards!
