Class of 1983 challenge grant helps boost Reunion giving 

The Kellogg School welcomed back more than 1,000 of its alumni and their guests to the Evanston campus May 2 to 4 for Reunion Weekend 2003. The record-setting attendance figures, coupled with a wide variety of educational and social events, made this year's Reunion the most successful in Kellogg history.

To make a Reunion gift, please visit Kellogg's secure Web site.

Reunion giving also remains on a successful track. Alumni have been showing their school spirit by making special gifts to Kellogg this year in honor of their milestone reunion. Each year, Kellogg relies upon contributions from alumni to support ongoing and new initiatives. Many Kellogg School alumni choose to make contributions to the Annual Fund, and during their reunion years they make an increased gift. Reunions also present excellent opportunities to increase class participation percentages.

This year's Reunion volunteers helped spread the word about their respective campaigns by sending letters and emails and making phone calls to ask for support from former classmates. Members of the Class of 1983 had extra incentive to participate in their 20th Reunion Gift Campaign because of a matching gift challenge presented by one of their classmates. The anonymous donor offered to match — dollar for dollar — each 20th Reunion Gift, up to $20,000. The challenge worked, and the Class of 1983 is on its way to breaking a record for participation and money raised.

The Kellogg School Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition revenues and the real expense of educating Kellogg students. Annual Fund dollars are invested in the core academic mission of the school, including faculty development, path-breaking research, student scholarships, facility enhancements, opportunities for student leadership and technology innovations.

Reunion gifts received by Aug. 31 will be counted toward this year's Reunion Gift campaign totals. To make your Reunion gift, please visit Kellogg's secure Web site.
