Alumni Reunion Giving Hits All-Time High

Department: Buff 'n Blue Journal

Alumni from classes ending in 2 or 7 set a new record for reunion giving this year by raising nearly $10 million in gifts and increasing participation to 33 percent. These totals topped the 2016 record of $7 million and 31 percent participation.

The Class of 1967 Reunion Committee proudly presents its Class Gift to President Jim Scott ’70 at Alumni Celebration in June. The check reflects their gift total as of May 31, 2017. The Class ultimately raised $1.62 million.

The 50th reunion Class of 1967 set a goal of $1 million, but ultimately raised $1.62 million by June 30, 2017, with 45 percent of classmates participating.

Reunion committees from classes ending in 3 or 8 are already preparing for Alumni Week 2018. In August, alumni interested in volunteering on their reunion committees met for the first time, and monthly class meetings began in September. Volunteers do not need to live in Hawai‘i to participate on their committees.
