Ask any Tepper alums who descend on campus each year for Reunion Weekend and they will continually tell you of the fun, excitement and joy at rekindling old relationships amongst their Tepper classmates.
Maximizing alumni participation in the Tepper Annual Fund is a primary goal of our reunion giving program as there is an amazing impact found in the power of collective giving.
Making a gift in recognition of your reunion year is a simple and easy way to show pride in being a Tepper alum, and also generates friendly competition amongst the classes. Some alumni also traditionally increase their support during reunion years, including a symbolic amount reflecting the number of years since graduation. For others, it means becoming a first-time member of the W.L. Mellon Society.
2013 REUNION GIVING CHALLENGE
First of all, be sure to mark your calendars for the weekend of April 19-20, 2013, when the Tepper School will celebrate reunion weekend.
The 2013 Tepper School reunion giving challenge will run from July 1, 2012, to June 30, 2013 (the end of our fiscal year). All gifts and payments booked in the current fiscal year, and allocated to the Tepper School of Business, will count toward this friendly contest.
How do you make your gift to the reunion challenge? It’s simple. Just make your gift as normal. We’ll add up the numbers in July and see who wins.
In the instance where someone has both an undergraduate and graduate Tepper School degrees, the gift will be credited toward the graduate degree year for purposes of this challenge. Should someone have both a master’s and a Ph.D. from the Tepper School, the gift also will be credited toward the master’s degree year for purposes of this challenge.
