Join your Class Gift Committee

Enthusiastic alumni volunteers are key to the success of the Washington University Reunion program. As a committee member, you will connect with your classmates and help solicit their support for your Reunion Class Gift. This gift recognizes the occasion of your Reunion and provides resources that will have a positive impact on current and future students.

We know that 80% of our alumni are unable to attend in-person Reunion. The Class Gift allows alumni from around the world to participate in this milestone anniversary. Our committees play an important leadership role in these efforts. Interested in learning more? Contact Emily Maltby.
