Volunteers provide energy and direction to
Each year, loyal alumni volunteer to be part of their class volunteer structure, serving as either a class chair, co-chair or volunteer. Each volunteer is responsible for contacting a set of classmates (of their choice) to encourage giving to the Sewanee Annual Fund. Class chairs work with SAF staff to set class dollar and participation goals each year. For the class chair roster, visit http://annualfund.sewanee.edu/alumni/class-chair-rosters/ and to check classes’ progress toward annual goals, go to http://annualfund.sewanee.edu/alumni/
Sewanee has an every-five-year reunion giving program that builds off of the every-year Sewanee Annual Fund class volunteer system. Each year, 10 classes are in active reunion mode. The 5th – 45th reunion classes work to increase support and participation in the Sewanee Annual Fund in the fiscal year before their reunion weekend. So, if a class is celebrating its reunion in the fall of 2017, for example, their reunion giving period is July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017. When a reunion class arrives on campus to celebrate their reunion, they will also be celebrating a completed (the prior June 30) reunion gift campaign.
