Class of 1969 50th Reunion: 50 percent for 50 years!

Our Class Gift: In Celebration of Our 50th Reunion

The Class of 1969 looks forward to honoring our time at Rensselaer by making an impact on the lives to students today. This year, we have set an ambitious goal to mark our 50th Reunion: 50 percent participation in giving!  

We know that many of you feel that Rensselaer gave you a solid foundation and helped propel you to success over the span of your career. You can make a difference in the life of a student, and choose to honor your milestone Reunion year with a gift to any of the many funds at Rensselaer. 

Did you know that you can support just about anything that impacts the life of a student directly?  Some examples include, but are not limited to:

  • The Annual Fund
  • Scholarships
  • Student clubs and organizations and the Student Union
  • Faculty research
  • Athletics:  Each and every team has a fund to support 
  • The Rensselaer Alumni Association Scholarship
  • The Rensselaer Alumni Association Endowment 
  • Any of the "schools" (Engineering, Science, HASS, Architecture, or Lally) 
  • The Newman Foundation 
  • ROTC
  • Fraternity scholarships 
  • Or your choice of a host of other possibilities. 

Our class hopes to reach 50 percent donor participation by Reunion & Homecoming Weekend. Each contribution made by a Class of ’69 member from July 1, 2018 to October 31, 2019 will continue to ensure excellence in education for Rensselaer students.

By making a gift through the "give now" button on this page, your gift will benefit the Rensselaer Annual Fund. If you prefer to designate your gift to one of hundreds of other funds on campus, please visit the Rensselaer Giving website. We will add your name to our donor wall on this site once your gift is processed.

If you are a loyal supporter of Rensselaer, now is the time to give just a little bit more. If you’ve never given before, don’t let this special milestone pass without paying it forward.  Your gift of any size matters, and will be deeply appreciated. Please pay it forward by joining us with your gift in honor of Reunion!

P.S. Don't forget, your gift to any of the areas above will still count toward your lifetime giving totals! Helpful hint: If you are 70 ½, give through your IRA with a rollover from your mandatory deduction, or choose to make a gift of appreciated stock, or consider including Rensselaer in your estate plans.

P.P.S  Send us a photo with a memory of your time at Rensselaer, and we will share some of them on social media and online as we approach Reunion & Homecoming. Please use this form to submit your photos.
