50th Reunion Gift

It is a tradition for the 50th Reunion class to present a gift to the school, and the planning committee has established two specific goals for the class gift. One is to reach 100% participation and the second is to raise $425,000 to support these two priorities:

  • Class of 1972 Fund for Wellness - This new Fund aligns with the school’s stated vision for the future “to provide an exceptional education, balancing rigor with wellbeing”. The wellness initiatives support the EW community with opportunities to expand knowledge about personal and community wellness.
  • The Emma Fund - Resources in the Emma Fund are unrestricted and are used for current needs. Areas of support include academics, athletics, faculty programs, financial aid, campus preservation, and special initiatives such as diversity and inclusion.
