Reunion Giving

Your participation makes a difference. Thank you!
Now more than ever your participation — at any level — makes a huge difference.
Whether this is your 5th or 50th Reunion, a gift during your Reunion year is a great way to commemorate each milestone. Each gift provides immediate assistance to the students, faculty, and staff in a year of profound changes in traditional practices. This year more than ever our priority has been to keep the Emma Willard School community safe as we continued to deliver a transformational education.
Your support shows students that, even in the midst of these challenging times, graduates of Emma Willard are a community of caring, creative, and resilient people. Without a doubt, the example you set for our students lets them know they are part of a community larger than themselves.
