Reunion giving is a unique opportunity for alumnae to honor the philosophies and traditions that distinguished their experience at Emma Willard. Whether this is your 5th Reunion or your 50th, class gifts are great way to commemorate each milestone. Each gift provides immediate assistance to the students, faculty, and staff who continue to make Emma Willard a global leader in girls’ education.
Need another reason to give? In honor of Emma Willard School’s Bicentennial, trustees past and present are offering a two-year challenge to the community to increase participation in The Emma Fund. Together, they are making an additional $350,000 gift to the school!
Emma is thrilled to announce that, as a community, we successfully met our first-year challenge goal with 30% participation. We now look forward to another record-breaking year with 33% participation by June 30, 2014. Now more than ever your participation – at any level—makes a huge difference.
This year, Emma Willard thanks and looks forward to hosting the classes ending in 0s and 5s:
Classes will be competing for the traditional Reunion Giving Silver Bowls to be engraved with their class year and displayed throughout every Reunion weekend:
