1967: 50th Reunion
$100,000 Matching Challenge Issued for Class of 1967!
The Class of 1967’s 50th Reunion is less than one year away. The Reunion Planning Committee is preparing for an exciting, fun-filled weekend. We hope you will consider joining us on October 12-15, 2017 to catch up with old friends and see what is new on campus.
Rensselaer laid a foundation for our careers by helping us to prepare for real-world challenges. For many of us, we were able to complete our education by receiving financial aid. You now have the opportunity to invest in the next generation of students by contributing to Rensselaer in honor of our Reunion.
In honor of this momentous occasion, Reunion planning committee member and fellow classmate, Paul McLaughlin ’67, will personally match all contributions to Rensselaer, up to $100,000, from now until October 31, 2017.
Although we would love to have a large class gift, we are especially interested in donor participation. Donor participation rates are one of the factors that determine how schools are ranked. Our class is striving to reach a milestone fundraising amount of $2 million dollars overall, with a goal of 50 percent of our class giving in honor of our 50th. We hope you will choose to support the Rensselaer Annual Fund, but all gifts to Rensselaer will count toward the class giving total.
There are many ways to support the Annual Fund and our class gift. One-time cash contributions, pledges, multi-year commitments, estate gifts, and bequests all count toward our goal. For more information regarding different ways to give, visit the Rensselaer giving website.
We hope you will join us in supporting our alma mater and we hope to see you next October!
