Kudos and thanks to the class for your spectacular generosity! So far…
— 44% of us have participated in the class gift.
— Together, we’ve given $1.3 million since our 45th reunion in cold (hard-earned) cash to help fund scholarships, support faculty and give today’s students a life-changing education.
— 25 of us have also put Northfield Mount Hermon in our estate plans. When we pass on (not too soon, we hope) the Class of 1970 will make NMH even better
If you haven’t yet made a gift to the school you love, the school that needs us more today than ever before, now is the time.
Because our on-campus 50th reunion has been delayed, anything we give next year (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021), will be added to our reunion gift. To sweeten the pot, an anonymous classmate has offered an amazing challenge gift. Here’s how it works:
• If 70 additional classmates who have not made a gift to the school since our 45th reunion (7-1-15) make a gift of any size to the NMH Fund or the NMH Fund Hardship Support between March 1 and December 31, 2020, an anonymous donor will give NMH $50,000.
• If we can get to a total of 100 additional donors by reunion weekend (date to be determined), the anonymous donor will give NMH another $50,000.
Thank you, our ever-youthful, wise, and wonderful classmates.
Classmates are making great efforts to pitch in to give back to the school that started us on our life path. Forty-one classmates are working to organize the 50th reunion (see list below), and a subset of that group has been tasked with asking fellow classmates to remember NMH. Their results are stellar.
More information on giving can be found in the following sections on the Lamplighter Society, the NMH Annual Fund and Planned Giving strategies. Also, there’s access to a form that can be used for either type as well as access to a recent fundraising letter (and comments from your classmates on the importance of giving back).
Your participation matters, whatever the amount.
