Class Reunion Gift
UWC Atlantic College “Class Reunion Gift”
Commemorate, Participate, Celebrate
You may not have realised it during your years on campus, but your great adventure was being underwritten by the gifts of generous alumni and friends of UWC Atlantic College.
The Reunion Gift Program is a critical component of the UWC Atlantic College Annual Fund.
As much as Reunion is about coming back to celebrate your years at UWC Atlantic College, Reunion is also about giving back. The Reunion Gift Program provides the core support the college needs to maintain its international reputation for excellence and commitment to scholarship.
All those celebrating Reunions this year are being asked to "participate in something great" by making a special gift to the college in honor of their Reunion.
In the last 3 years the classes of ‘69’, ‘79’, ‘80’, '81', ‘89’, ‘90’ and '91' have had scholarships named in their honor. If your class manages to raise £48,000 or more we will name a scholarship the following year in recognition of your fundraising achievements.
Every gift, big or small matters!
Making a contribution to the Class Gift is a meaningful way to give something back to the college and to provide support for those following in your footsteps. Your regular support enables the college to maintain and enhance its scholarship provision and to ensure that we continue to accept the brightest and the best students that contribute to make the UWC Atlantic College experience so unique.
Participation is the key to success!
Last year the Class of 1991 achieved a participation rate of 41% and managed to raiseover £100,000 to commemorate their Reunion year and to support scholarships at the college. They have set the bar high and laid down a challenge for other years to beat. Throughout the Reunions we will be displaying the “Class Gift” participation rates and fundraising totals – so you will be able to see how your year is doing! Can you beat the 41% participation rate of AC91
Any gift made between January and 31st August in your reunion year will count towards your Reunion Class gift!
All years of multi-year pledges will count towards your class total, yet payments may be spread over as many as 3 years.
All Corporate Matching gifts count. Ask you company's HR department to find out more.
