Reunions are milestones—occasions for alumnae to “Cultivate the Vine” and reflect on what SUA has meant to them, and renew their ties to the Academy. Reunion celebrations are also a time when classes focus their fundraising efforts to increase giving in support of preserving the gift of education that they had received and to help in providing the tradition-rich experience for students with financial need. Reunion campaigns engage the participation of nearly half the members of each reunion class—and many more in some cases. Each year these campaigns raise thousands for the Annual Fund, supporting scholarships, innovative academic programs and the expanded campus on McMillan Street.
The highest priority for reunion giving is The Annual Fund, which supports the core needs of education and provides unrestricted dollars for scholarships, academic programs, campus maintenance and student co-curricula activities.
Multiyear pledges are another way to make a meaningful commitment to a reunion campaign. Alumnae are encouraged to combine a significant annual fund gift or pledge with an even larger commitment to the endowment.
Every gift to SUA counts for your reunion year giving.
Any class member can lead by example by making a leadership gift and serving on the class campaign committee. Reconnect with classmates, reminisce about your SUA experience, and share why you support the Academy today. Experience the growing tradition of reunion volunteerism, rediscover your alma mater, and make a difference to your class and to the students who benefit from The Annual Fund.
Reunion campaigns could not succeed without the help of dedicated volunteers. In seeking support for The Annual Fund, reunion volunteers help their classes achieve their goals, and reunion campaign gifts directly benefit St. Ursula Academy. To volunteer for a reunion campaign, contact your class representative or the Alumnae Office.
