Reunion Giving

Reunion giving is truly the heart of philanthropy at Gettysburg College. We hope you will celebrate your reunion year's milestone and reflect on the impact Gettysburg has had on your life.

Reunion class gifts support the Gettysburg Fund, providing the philanthropic foundation for the College to adapt, innovate, and ensure that a Gettysburg education continues to prepare our students to lead lives of consequence.

Cash gifts and pledges count toward your class gift. You are encouraged to make your best gift possible to the Gettysburg Fund this year in honor of your reunion and also to deepen your impact by making a 5-year pledge.

Your reunion year is the perfect time to join the Cupola Society with a gift of $2500 or more. The generosity of Cupola Society members deeply impacts the College and sets an example of leadership to inspire others. Alumni in their 5th and 10th Reunion are encouraged to join the Cupola Society with a new tiered-giving schedule in their first 15 years after graduation. This enables you to maintain membership while your gift and impact increase over time.

Your class's gift will be announced and celebrated during Reunion Weekend.
