Reunion Giving provides a special way for you to honor your Reunion Class, spark and renew class spirit, and affirm your belief in a Chase education. As much as Reunion is about coming back to rekindle friendships and celebrate your time as a student at the School, Reunion is also celebrating your partnership with Chase and its future. Some Reunion classes support specific capital projects while others simply ask for your participation by making a gift to the Chase Annual Fund.
We invite you to consider stretching your donation in honor of your reunion year. You might choose to:
- Increase your gift two (or more!) times your usual Chase Annual Fund contribution (payments can be pledged over several years);
- Identify the School as your number one philanthropic choice during this special year; or
- Make a first-time gift to the School.
Alumni have found several approaches useful when making the kind of special gifts that bring about these large class goals. Options include: spreading a leadership-level contribution over three tax years; giving gifts of assets, such as appreciated securities or other property; and involving other entities to which they have a connection, like a foundation or corporate matching gift program. Gift annuities often provide income and tax benefits and may present an attractive way to honor your Reunion.
