Reunion Giving

Your Reunion Gift Celebrates and Strengthens Allegheny College

Your Allegheny Reunion is an exciting opportunity for you to renew friendships and return to campus during one of the most beautiful times of year.

As you reflect on the meaningful role that the College has played in your life, we hope you also will consider making a special gift in honor of your Reunion and your Allegheny education. You can help make the same life-changing experience possible for today’s students—and strengthen the College for generations to come.

A special commitment in honor of your Reunion may include:

  • Giving at an increased level to the Annual Fund, which provides essential support for financial aid, academic programs, campus upkeep and preservation, and nearly every aspect of an Allegheny education
  • Endowing a scholarship, faculty position or other fund to provide perpetual resources that ensure Allegheny’s continued success
  • Supporting Allegheny through your will or other long-term financial plans

A Reunion gift of any kind is deeply appreciated and makes a difference at Allegheny College.
