The gifts are all in and the numbers totaled. The class of 2002, which celebrates its 10th reunion this year, is the winner of this year’s second annual March Challenge. The month-long challenge pits young alumni classes against one another to see which class donates the most gifts. This year’s challenge helped bring the total number of gifts to 2,134 as of March 30, which is 300 gifts ahead of where we were at the same time last year.
In its last year to participate in the challenge, the class of 2002 made an outstanding number of gifts in the month of March. The 2nd place finishers were the class of 2004, followed by the class of 2007, celebrating its fifth reunion this year. Together, the last 10 graduating classes raised more than $11,600 for the college.
Thank you to all of the young alumni who participated in the challenge and to those of you who give throughout the year. Regardless if you graduated from Saint Anselm in the last decade, the last five decades or anywhere in between; if you’re a young alumnus or just young at heart, you play an important role in Saint Anselm College’s continued progress and accomplishment.
No matter the size of your gift, your participation is critical to help define and enhance the college for future generations of Anselmians. Every gift demonstrates alumni participation and engagement. It expresses satisfaction with the experience you had as a student, and shows a desire to provide current students the same opportunities you were afforded.
We hope you will join your classmates and make a gift to your alma mater. With less than 2 months left in our fiscal year, which ends on June 30, 2012, now is a great time to make your gift, support the college and be counted in your class participation! Give online today!
