Letter from Class Agent Axelrod
It is my pleasure to update you on our 45th Reunion Annual Giving campaign as we pick up speed with the start of the new year. As you hopefully know, our goals are to raise $2,069,000 with participation by 69% of the class. To date, we have received gifts from 28% of the class totaling $635,000 and have additional pledges of $432,000. This total commitment of $1,067,000 takes us more than halfway to our goal. I particularly appreciate the generosity of the many classmates who have increased their gifts compared to what they gave at the 40th Reunion.
We are off to a great start, with many classmates yet to be heard from. This year, we will be sending periodic update letters on the campaign to all classmates and will personally contact those of you we haven’t heard from. So, what can you do to help? The obvious answer—contribute now in an amount that is meaningful to you. You are in the right place to do this quickly and easily; just click on the Giving tab at the top of the home page, then click on the link to Annual Giving. What else can you do? I am looking for "a few good men” to help reach out to classmates. If you would like to learn more, please email me at email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued generosity and support.
